What we do


What we do


 
 

Research

 
 

Education

We hold workshops, masterclasses and lectures on mycelium-materials, bacterial leathers, bio-design and related topics because we're passionate to stimulate a new generation of designers, architects and engineers to work with materials that are grown with living organisms. We have therefor partnerships with the biolab ReaGent and the Open biolab Brussels., but can also organise the workshops on location.

Advice

We advise organisations on their waste or material challenges. We investigate and develop innovative ways to transform the left-overs, like paper, cardboard, wood, agricultural by-products, of companies into new design solution by using micro-organisms. To do so, we offer advice and assistance in researching the process from the proof of concept to the prototype, with a sustainable and economical approach.

What if?


What if the materials that surrounds us would be grown with biological organisms, like bacteria and mycelium?

What if those materials could bio-degrade and become a nutrition to the soil after their use?
