Maurizio Montalti, partner of our Myco Design Lab, just opened his solo exhibition called "The Future of Plastic" in Naples. The exhibition will present some of the latest research and grown products, developed within Officina Corpuscoli’s project The Growing Lab, where fungal mycelia are implemented for the constitution of new materials and the resulting applications.
The Future of Plastic purposes a radical paradigm shift, offering a different insight into the objects occupying our everyday life. By moving beyond traditional production methods, a new universe of cultivated objects starts to emerge, outlining possible, tangible alternatives and potentially different futures, in which plastics exist as a completely natural material.

Maurizio will also participate in our BIO ME festival from 18-20 September, researching new biologic materials.
