Printing Living Furniture and Wearing Dead Mirco-Organisms

Join us tomorrow for a hut warming, two bio-tech talks and a mushroom meal

Right after we toast, at 17:30, to our self-build strawoffice, Mediamatic's Bio Industry will present two bio-tech talks and a mushroom lasagna for dinner:

Interior architect Simone Vermaning makes really strong textiles from mycelium, that are also good for your skin. Eric Klarenbeek explored various 3D-printing techniques using living organisms such as mycelium. He will present his most recent project, Mycelium Chair.


Fungal Dress - Fungal Fabrics: Nourishing Fashion

Entrance for the bio-tech talks with a valid Mediamatic Membership (€5). Enjoy a fungi meal for only 5 euro at 19:00, the bio-tech talks start at 20:00, Location: Mediamatic, VOC-kade 10, Oostenburg Amsterdam. More information and RSVP on our website.

This event is part of Mediamatic Bio Industry, a broad techno-cultural lab exploring the possibilities of fungal material and other bio-based materials for design, science and art. Scientist, artists, designers, architects, and the public, will together investigate how to make use of the promising characteristics of mycelium – the plastic of the 21st century. Join us every second Wednesday of the month for Mediamatic's Bio Industry: bio-tech talks, design, science and art.

Open Call for designers, artists, scientists and architects, who are inspired by the potential of bio-materials such as mycelium, to join our network of experts and offer the opportunity to collaborate with a research team of the Biology faculty of the University of Utrecht.
