Design studio Sebastian Cox designs and makes furniture and home accessories from a natural perspective. Its aim is to produce furniture in such a way that woodland expands rather than shrinks. The goal is for the number of woodlands and areas of unspoilt land in Great Britain to have doubled by 2040, and the design studio’s contribution is to make furniture that is good for the environment. This lamp, for example, was grown from mycelium and green wood waste (hazel and goat willow, harvested in Kent) en and is entirely compostable. Once you are done using the lamp, it can be returned to the cycle, contributing to growth rather than destruction of nature.
This object is part of the Design by Nature collection of Museum de Fundatie. On this page you will find more information about this exhibition and you can visit it digitally via a video tour.
