MYX – Jonas Edvard – (Denmark)

Kingdom: Vegetabile.


“MYX consist of plant fibre and mushroom-mycelium. The material is grown into shape during a period of two to three weeks, where the mushroom mycelium grows together the plant fibres into a flexible and soft living textile. After two weeks, you can harvest the healthy Oyster mushrooms. The waste product can then be dried and used as a lightweight material, that is both organic, compostable and sustainable.

The mushroom mycelium stabilizes the construction by physically growing together the material behaving as a glue between the fibres. The MYX consists of waste – the mushroom organism comes from a commercial mushroom farm and the plant fibres is a leftover material from the textile industry, MYX is an optimized end-waste product with a nutritious food product during the growing cycle.” (Edvard, 2014)
