BioTalk: Bulletproof Skin and growing Mycelium Lamps

Wednesday April 9th. Food at 19:00, talks at 20:00

Jalilla Essaïdi and Jonas Edvard talk about their projects, both engaged in the development of sustainable products. Jalilla is creating a bulletproof skin of spider silk and is optimizing this as a synthetic product. Jonas’ growing mycelium lamp provides you edible oyster mushrooms within 2 weeks. The MYX lamp is an end-waste product made with fungi and leftover material from the textile industry.

Join us for food and two talks about bio-based art, research and design on April 9
