Description
A cloud of lampshades grown from mushroom mycelium, each varying in size and height span the ceiling of the Riverhouse suite in the 1Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. The sustainable material’s soft texture and glow gracefully communicates the ethos of both Danielle Trofe Design and 1Hotels, a luxury lifestyle hotel brand inspired by nature that cultivates the best of eco-conscious design and sustainable architecture.

MushLume is an award-winning biofabricated lighting collection that is GROWN, not manufactured, from mycelium—the roots of mushrooms

The lampshades are grown utilizing a sustainable crop—hemp—and combines it with a rapidly renewable living organism—mycelium. In just a few days, the mycelium grows, cultivating a thick network of hyphae that binds to the hemp substrate, solidifying into a solid structure within the custom lampshade molds. After the mycelium has fully matured, the lampshades are demolded, dried and heated, creating a stable, inert and 100% biodegradable product.

By tapping into a unique material science that uses mushroom mycelium, we can begin to reimagine a more sustainable future, one in which natural resources are not extracted from nature, but rather are grown in a lab. And where production processes require very little energy or water. Most importantly, when the product is at the end of its lifecycle, it can safely return to the Earth adding nutrients back to the soil rather than lasting for hundreds of years or releasing toxins.
