Interesting work from Dutch Studio – Eric Klarenbeek
The Mycelium Project – Print and Grow
Studio Eric Klarenbeek is exploring ways of 3D-printing living organisms, such as mycelium, the threadlike network of fungi, in combination with local raw materials to create products with a negative carbon footprint.
‘We are the first in the world to 3D-print living mycelium, using this infinite natural source of organisms as living glue for binding organic waste. Once it’s full-grown and dried, it turns into a structural, stable and renewable material. Combined with 3D-printing it gives us tremendous design freedom’, says Eric Klarenbeek.
