The Mush-Lume Table Lamp doesn't just look like an edible fungus, it is made out of a variety of toadstools. A clever creation that is as stylish as is sustainable, the light fixture shows that people don't have to rely on petroleum-based plastics and non-renewable materials in order to create good-looking furnishings for the home. Although it sports an organic appearance, the Mush-Lume Table Lamp is clean and simple, allowing it to complement many living spaces.

Designed by Danielle Trofe in collaboration with Ecovative Design, the Mush-Lume Table Lamp is grown, not made. Agricultural waste products such as corn husks and stalks are stuffed into a mold and injected with liquid mycelium, which acts as a glue to hold the form together.
