Biodegradable Benches
Shinwei Rhoda Yen's Wooden Seat is Embedded With Mushroom Spores

By: Marissa Brassfield (Superstar) Feb 27, 09

This biodegradable bench by Shinwei Rhoda Yen is made of wood and embedded with mushroom spores. As the mushrooms grow, they’ll feed on the nutrients in the wood. Eventually, the wood will deteriorate completely and succumb completely to the mushrooms.

Shinwei Rhoda Yen’s bench is a perfect illustration of the complex relationships found in nature. Whether this biodegradable bench is located in a garden or on a sunny porch, it infuses a dose of organic authenticity to an urban or suburban setting.
