Get a glimpse behind the scenes, peek inside our sensorial labs, and learn more about the bio-art installations around the Biotoop during our weekly tour on Friday! On this tour we will also focus on all sorts of fungi growing around the Biotoop, with our mycelium pigeon towers being one of the highlights!

During the tour, you'll get the chance peek inside our labs, in which we explore the possibilities of bio-materials for design, science and art. We will take you to the Clean lab, where we are currently focusing on the use of waste materials, as a source for new material. You get an introduction in the Aroma lab, our open perfume workshop and scent library where scent is explored as an artistic medium. And you will get to see the Plant lab, where we grow herbs and edible flowers for our restaurant in a sustainable way. 

During the walk, we will also talk more about the current exhibitions and growing art installations that you find both on the outside and inside of our building. At the end of the tour, we'd like to invite you to stay for a fresh homemade Kombucha!
