Mycelium coffee table | 2021
Coffee table made from 100% mushroom mycelium.
Table-top features a semi-circular groove relief to function as a unique catch-all solution for the various remote controls, pens, and snacks commonplace on a coffee table’s surface, while also serving as a distinct visual cue. The design of the table was heavily inspired by natural growth and the asymmetrical forms that nature provides.
Furniture is the least recycled household item, and it also comprises the second largest portion of urban waste. MYCO! was born as a solution to these problems. The mushroom mycelium that the table is comprised of is 100% bio-degradable, non-toxic, flame-retardant, carbon-negative, and with a higher strength-to-volume ratio than concrete! All of these unique qualities make it an ideal candidate for a sustainable furniture design solution.
To manufacture the table, it would have to be grown into a mold of the same shape. Thus, 2 ° of draft were applied to the entire body, to help facilitate easy removal from the mold. With dimensions of 15” H, 26” W, & 45” L, the table is small and compact enough to fit into virtually any space.
