This limited fungi shelf was designed by Mischer Traxler. According to DesignBoom, the piece is "about editions that reflect limitations in reality: untouched nature, maintained traditions, old craftsmanship, languages and dialects."

The project transforms endangered species into limited edition works of art. Each piece is a separate endangered species, like the fungi shelf featured in the above gallery.

Best of all, some of the money that is made from the purchases of these artworks goes to environmental projects that helps save the selected species. Eco and beautiful!
