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.
