The mycelium incubator is a contained system, which propagates the growth of mycelium. Mycelium is the fast growing hyphae root system of mushrooms, which creates a plastic/foam like material. It can be mixed with waste produce, such as coffee grounds, and grown into forms. By creating bio based alternatives to harmful materials such as plastic, we can enter into a new bio era where we grow what we consume, making us symbiotic with our environment and reducing our negative impact.
Coralise is a project which aims to reduce juvenile coral mortality (99%). The substrates are a unique ceramic material made of calcium carbonate from coral skeletons. This, along with its carefully designed 3D printed organic form, attracts the coral larvae. The pattern on the product replicates the corallite structures created as coral grows its skeleton, thus protecting juveniles in developmental stages. These substrates are created for lab research and ocean reefs.
