An exploration in mixed media and mold making, the MushLume Trumpet Pendant combines the traditional use of hand-turned wood with an innovative mushroom material. Shaped after the curves of a trumpet, this hanging lamp comes in multiple color options that create a dramatic interior effect. The Trumpet Pendant is embellished with brass hardware, a cloth cord and hand-turned wood.

The MushLume lighting collection is GROWN, not manufactured, from mushrooms! Combining mushroom mycelium with agricultural byproducts to create an organic, sustainable and biodegradable lamp shade. Each lamp is grown over the course of 4-10 days and is carefully handcrafted throughout the process of molding, growing and drying. The mushroom material is left natural/untreated and may overtime age showing more golden tones or can be hand painted white with a non-toxic, all natural milk paint. The MushLume lighting collection is an initiative to start thinking differently about what products are made from and begin to reimagine a more sustainable future.

For indoor use only.

Creating sustainable solutions at the intersection of science, technology and design

Danielle Trofe Design is a Brooklyn-based design studio that harnesses innovative technologies and material sciences to create functional and accessible design. Danielle aims to encourage a departure from conventional materials and production techniques in search of long-term, sustainable solutions.

The MushLume Lighting Collection, launched in 2014, has received international awards and been one of the first biofabricated goods to prove viability in both retail and commercial markets within the lighting industry. The MushLume Lighting Collection utilizes a sustainable crop (hemp) and combines it with a rapidly renewable living organism (mycelium) and harnesses only the power of nature to GROW the lampshades that in turn can return safely to the earth (home compostable), adding nutrients back to the soil rather than pollutants.

The award-winning Hydroponic Vertical Garden is a testament that aesthetic need not be compromised when incorporating innovative technologies into the design process. Exhibited at BMW's Born Electric Tour in 2013 and becoming permanent installations at the Brooklyn and U.S. Botanic Gardens, Danielle Trofe's vertical gardens offer a glimpse into a biophilic future.
