Eco-designer turns mushrooms into lampshades
An eco-friendly Belgian company is turning to mushrooms as a replacement for traditional materials.
The Lumifungi project sees lampshades made from mushrooms grown from used coffee grounds.
Project designer Caroline Pultz says the mushroom-based material the lamps are made of has a very versatile nature; it can also be turned into flower pots, be used for packaging, acoustic insulation and even replace construction bricks.
