Printing Living Furniture and Wearing Dead Micro-Organisms

Biotalk 0 - with Simone Vermaning and Eric Klarenbeek

8 Jan 2014

Two designers about their bio-material research and a mushroom dinner

Interior architect Simone Vermaning makes really strong textiles from mycelium, that are also good for your skin. She aims to combine glamour with health benefits, and in the process help improve the textile industry. In collaboration with the Mushroom Research Group of Wageningen University, Eric Klarenbeek explored various 3D-printing techniques using living organisms such as mycelium. He will present his most recent project, Mycelium Chair. Join us!
