designing with mycelium


IMG_2868 (2).jpg -

I am an Industrial Design student at Eindhoven University of Technology with a passion for nature, art and technology or more precisely a combination of them all.

I love to spend my days in workshops constructing things, reading books, visiting places, meeting beloved friends and strangers, teaching children, or going mushroom picking at five in the morning in a dense and misty forest.

These days I spend most of my time together with friends in a self-build lab where we explore the possibilities of designing with living organisms. We work on a project about fabric dyeing with pigment producing bacteria and explore its application using technologies to control the growing process while creating different patterns!

Designing with living organisms is the reason you can find me in Mediamatic. How can design with mycelium contribute to art, society and our planet? Can we save the world with muschrooms? How can we make people believe we can?
