The mushroom table lamps by London-based designer Nir Meiri can be observed both in the figurative and literal sense. The fixtures have a slim silhouette that is gently topped with mycelium -- which is "the vegetative part of a fungus."
In the search for sustainable alternatives for synthetic materials, mushroom mycelium is something that frequently comes up. Now that the resource is gaining traction in design environments and skilled creatives are pushing its limits to find its boundaries, it won't be long before the organic material becomes standard. Nir Meiri combines it with paper waste.
The development of the mushroom table lamps is entirely governed by naturally occurring biological processes. Completed in collaboration with Biohm, the silhouettes of the fixtures are interesting, engaging, and incredibly innovative.
