Craft combine creates a homeware collection made from mushroom mycelium
바이오랩서울과 디자인스튜디오 크래프트콤바인이 함께 진행한 마이셀리움 프로젝트가 디자인 매거진 ‘Design Boom’ 에 실렸습니다.
이번 프로젝트는 빗살무늬토기와 같은 선사 시대 유물을 친환경의 버섯균사체로 제작하였습니다. 인류의 발전을 상징하는 토기 를 자연 생분해가 가능한 미래 재료 ‘버섯균사체(마이셀리움)’로 제작하여 마이셀리움이 인류를 발전을 상징하는 재료가 되길 희망하는 마음을 담았습니다. 마이셀리움 토기는 공예와 마찬가지로 일정한 결과물이 나오지 않기에 모양, 질감이 다르지만 독특한 모습을 가지고 있습니다. 아래 포스팅 내용을 통해 직접 확인해보세요.
Seoul-based studio craft combine designed a collection of containers made of mycelium, a biodegradable material, through a collaboration with bio lab seoul, a public biology laboratory. in the project, pottery is seen as a morphological motif that made rapid progress in the life of prehistoric humans. this way, the designers hope that new environmentally-friendly materials, such as mycelium, will once again revolutionize human life.
the designers discovered that mycelium is a self-sustainable natural material that can be combined with agricultural byproducts to grow into composite materials. the material, a fungus-like bacterial colony, grows through a natural and uneven process. this makes it difficult to obtain a consistent form and finish because the growth control process is not regular. however, craft combine took advantage of this characteristic to create unique pieces that vary in texture, color and shape.
mycelium, which is mixed with straw to give the objects strength and structure, was grown inside a 3D printed mold to create the homeware collection. the different pieces have varying shapes and textures, which imitate pottery’s unique handmade look. in particular, the comb-pattern pottery was applied to mycelium ware to reveal the pottery belonging to the neolithic age found in the korean peninsula.
