The Growing Lab project

Maurizio Montalti

___The Growing Lab is an ongoing research project, exploring strategies for growing materials and therefore products, by implementing fungal mycelia. Through his project Maurizio Montalti | Officina Corpuscoli envisions a world where the classical concept of production is replaced by a new paradigm based on growth and cultivation and where products come to life through a process comparable to a sort of natural 3D printing.

Transnatural collaborates with the designer on concept development and production of a new series of design products. First results will be exhibited during the Salone in Milan 2015.
