You might not believe it at first glance, but the elegant pendant lights you see above are not made in a factory – they’re grown from living mushrooms ! Inhabitat favorite Danielle Trofe has developed a process for creating organic, biodegradable designs from mushroom mycelium – and she recently launched a new Cascade pendant light fitted with brass hardware that looks beautiful when hung solo or strung up in groups. If you’d like to pick one up, head on down to the Made in Brooklyn Holiday Market on November 22-23 from 10am to 6pm! + Danielle Trofe The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Danielle Trofe’s Brilliant Mush-Lume Lamp is Grown From Fungi!

We’ve featured Danielle Trofe ‘s amazing energy-generating hourglass lamps in the past, and the designer just unveiled a new table lamp called Mush-Lume that is grown instead of being manufactured! The lamp shade is created using Ecovative ’s patented growing process, which combines agricultural byproducts (like seed husks and corn stalks) with mushroom mycelium to grow a 100% organic, sustainable and biodegradable mushroom material. The lamp’s base is made from FSC-certified wood and hand-cast concrete. The lamp is set to launch on February 24th on Kickstarter , so stay tuned for your chance to support this project! + Danielle Trofe The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
