This chair grows funghi on it (!!!). Designer Eric Klarenbeek developed in collaboration with Wageningen University a Mycelium Chair. This chair was printed with living materials. We are impressed by the way of using the 3D printing technique with growing material. The basis of the chair is straw with a thin layer of bio plastic. It is ‘produced’ in a special clean greenhouse. The chair is a metaphor of what can be achieved with new materials and production methods.
