Mushroom Chair by Terreform ONE

Updated: Jan 27, 2020

Terreform ONE is a non-profit organization whose mission is to illuminate a more sustainable and ecologically-connected future for cities through innovative designs using biology and engineering.

Terreform ONE has created a waste-free, pollution-free mushroom chair, the first of its kind. The chair was grown in seven days from strains of fungi into the multi-curved geometries of the piece. At the end of the useful product life cycle, the chair can be composted and safely reintroduced back into the environment, where it can be naturally biodegraded. Terreform ONE will unveil this statement piece at ICFF, and show that biodesign can offer a beautiful alternative to custom or mass furniture fabrication that does not deplete natural resources but can actually contribute to the environment.
