Terreform ONE is experimenting with the temporality of furniture design by offering consumers a chair made from compostable mushrooms, fittingly titled the Mushroom Chaise. The chair features a detailed and futuristic structural design comprised exclusively from fungi. The chair is built to last for a certain period of time, and then reduce into environmentally friendly waste. The biodegradable design of the movable comments on the waste of mass-produced decor pieces that are only used for short periods of time before discarded.

The Mushroom Chaise is both a functional unit as well a statement on using sustainable materials in building. The chair is fully ecological with a curved skeletal shape that is futuristic as well as eye-catching. Terreform explains that when no longer in use, the furniture piece can be "composted and safely reintroduced back into the environment, where it can be naturally biodegraded"
