Nature can be a designer's best friend as well as a brilliant point of inspiration. It would be silly to think that our short time span to design objects and processes could ever begin to match with mother nature's billions of years of practice.

When you're next walking through a forest, take the time to slow down and wander and you'll be amazed at the things you would usually miss.

Hunting for fungi is a lot more enjoyable with friends... even if it's a trusty truffle snuffler, who never complains about staying in the forest for hours.

Pine needles become a sustainable material.
.

We are so happy to present our collection of pine needle materials, using natural binder, fibres and additives and working with traditional treatment techniques only.
.

We’ve developed a both hard and flexible composite and all our testing has been with discarded christmas trees from this season. Which is not for no reason - The christmas tree industry has a loss of 30% of the total harvest every year, as these trees don’t live up to standards. With Denmark being one of the biggest producers and exporters of christmas trees in Europe with a yearly sale of 11 millions trees, we are still left with 4,7 million trees, mainly burned or discarded to give space for new seeds on the field. This loss is what we want to tap into, making use of leftover materials while introducting a novel use of pine needles.
.

We aim to further develop the materials this spring to make them ready to be used in products and collaborations. We see that the solid composite could work well as a panel, tile, facade or something more structural in product designs. The flexible composite has fine associations with leather and could be used for furnitures, accessories and further.
.

But first: Champagne! And then many crossed fingers for positive response from possible foundations to support the work.
.

Please let us know what you think - we’ll love to hear from you.

Even when there's physical obstacles fighting against them, fungi still finds a way to push past it and flourish... We could certainly learn a few things from them.

Flattest F. fomentarius that I've seen! Mushroom hunting is at its lowest time in the UK but you can always find a Polypore or two to photograph on your walks.

Another one of the samples from the mycoremidiation project. This isolation of mycelium extracts the red dye but then expresses it through it's hyphae. (You can see the colour tint very slightly through this shot.)
.

Paul Stammets has envisioned this type of process to be used to extract minerals and elements which can then be refined back to virgin molecules... imagine a mining process where you grow mushrooms in mineral rich soil, to which you collect and process the mushrooms!

Making leaps and bounds on some of the projects that I have started. The pictures below are an example of mycelium's brilliant, but random, power to adapt. Both plates below were inoculated on the same substrate (MEA) and were dyed bright red with colouring.

One promising feature of mycelium is it's ability to learn how to break down specific molecules, especially hydrocarbons, and are often attracted to them for their high energy potential. Simulating these molecules with the red dye, you can see how the plate on the left is ahead of the right in digesting the red dye, having a higher nutritional content to the agar. The application of this method will help humans clean up oil spills, heavy metal soil contamination, pesticide residuess; the list goes on and on.

Fun fact: this plant has the stiffness required to make a plane!⠀
⠀
Other reasons we LOVE Flax🌾 ⠀
-It takes approximately 100 days to fully harvest ⠀
-Requires no irrigation⠀
-Produces zero waste⠀
-Absorbs CO2 directly from the air through photosynthesis (go nature!)⠀
-Highest stiffness to weight of all the natural fibers

'A fungal landscape...' Mycelium and mushrooms are one of the most overlooked biological systems that we know. It's common knowledge that a walk through a forest can see us stepping on thousands of miles of mycelium networks, but yet we never see this magic.

We invite you into a window of mycelium, each one as unique as a fingerprint, as a response to it's changing environment. It allows you to explore the most bizarre textures and shows that mushrooms aren't something to be fearful of, but amazed by.

If you are interested in this product, contact algranter@outlook.com. They can be built to fit any size, shape or preference upon request.

Winter time with mycelium really slows down as temperatures drop; stock and products take their time, but it seems like a way that the fungi forces you to take your time to refresh and reboot your processes and plan for the year ahead.

Beginning to move into a prototyping stage for a lot of the products we have planned so we can hit the summer running.

Webpage coming together thanks to @ashlynsailsbury for great (and rapid!) photoshoot this weekend.
.

We’ve been super busy these weeks wrapping up our pine needle composites and we’re very much looking forward showcasing them soon (and yes, there’s more than one type!).
.

@frejaekraemmer has been super effecient and pragmatic thinking figuring out how to optimize our treatment process and developing great material tests. And we’re waiting on exciting new gear and lots of binder material to play with. Yay!
.

If you have any questions or just want to connect please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’ll love to meet you awesome people out there who are doing amazing and inspiring discoveries. I really believe in knowledge sharing and open source, and I believe that it’s by collaborating that we can bring the future dreams present.
.

So many opportunities lies upon and I can’t wait to explore them, hopefully with some of you.
.

All the best,
Bonnie

Manipulation principles.
.
When working with natural matters reniewing their lifes as new composites, I think it’s all about finding that aesthetical balance of how much to manipulate and change so that you can still read the origin and history in the material.
.
It is something that’s taking up a lot of our talks at the moment, developing our new composites of the pine needles.
.
One example is that we (by accident!) grilled and semi burned a batch of branches, but saw an idea in using them as a color additional in the original needle mass.
.

Therefore, we are currently developing a ranch of color tests with the burned needles as additive to choose our final materials from.
.

This is one sample from the studio. Personally, I like the tactility and depth of the material, where you can really sense the structure and almost read the fibres. What do you think?

'From spoon to bowl...' We undervalue what trees do for our planet; they store carbon, supply us with the air we breathe and support the wildlife we see. Carving an object from timber should be seen as a privilege, but to see the amount of wasted potential from the wood shavings goes against honouring that.

Whilst I've been learning how to carve, I have been accumulating all the shavings which have been destined to be transformed using fungi to give this material a new lease of life. This should be proof that one man's trash can be another man's treasure.

We created our award-winning bio-based composite in 2014 and gained initial traction in sports and leisure as a replacement for carbon fiber. In 2017, supported by SOSV/Indiebio, Lingrove developed Ekoa® composite and we are currently in pilots and selling to major interior brands. Keep your eye out for more Ekoa-made products in 2019.

One of the lights decided that it wanted to begin fruiting over Christmas. The white bulge in the centre is new growth, focusing it's energy and mass to produce a polypore conk in order to drop it's spores and reproduce; haven't experienced this before, but I must of had the conditions just perfect for this guy.

With time to think and the year coming to a close it's hard not to look back; and how amazing it has been. Roughly a year ago today my biggest worry was figuring out what project to do for my graduation, not knowing that during my research I had stumbled on something that would change my life and lead me here.

It was a simple coincidence and through the amazing @studiodan I was able to jump into the world of mycological design by vouching on my behalf to the talented @sebastiancoxltd. Then through six months of pain, sweat and lots of mold mixed with patience from the team, things clicked into place. I look forward to every new day working with mycelium and the wonders they produce and I feel so lucky to be able to call this my job.

Thank you to everyone who made this year what it is and I hope everyone has an amazing new year.

Every day is a total mystery to me! Each time I start to think that I'm mastering fungi and getting somewhere, mother nature throws a curveball and screws that all up! Isolated this wild Agaricus bisporus (common mushroom) and the mycelia growth is nuts! It does look beautiful though. Anyone have a clue? 😲

Using the same material but a different substrate (the material below the surface layer) is one way we can customize the color of Ekoa®. Here we used the same material, but a light and a dark substrate beneath it to achieve two different looks. The Ekoa® layer is more than skin deep as it also provides structure!

Recently read about a study trying to prove that "reality is just a series of hallucinations that we collectively agree on..." - makes you think about how much of that can be changed or controlled.

You are mistaken... this is not the eye of sauron! The mycelium will find any point of escape and when it does, it begins to thrive without any substrate, using it's network to provide nutrients from the core. If you ever look at the mycelia network under a microscope, you will see it pulsating almost like our own circulatory system.

Just been reading up about ant-fungus mutualism, where colonies such as leaf cutter ants actually farm and propagate a species of fungi. They've been so successful in doing so that the fungi has evolved to a point where it cannot be found in the wild without living alongside a colony, and better yet, when the queen is ready to leave to start fresh, it will take a sample of the fungus to start its new colony.

The @WWF’s recent Living Planet report recognized global land degradation and deforestation as major contributors to global climate change. We see this as an opportunity. Lingrove works towards a suitable alternative to meet demands for high quality wood. With Ekoa®, our resilient low impact material, we cultivate fast-growing plants that sequester carbon through photosynthesis as a pathway towards climate action.

What is worth protecting? Lingrove keeps trees in the ground for future generations with Ekoa, an eco-friendly natural composite. "Trees are nature’s great feat of material engineering with the stiffness-to-weight of steel...These forests also sequester CO2. With such remarkable qualities they should be studied, emulated and left in the ground as living inspiration" Read more what Founder, Joe Luttwak, has to say by clicking the link in our bio.

Frustrating as it is, I wouldn't change this past half a year working with mycelium. It has completely taken over my life as both a hobby and a job, even weekends aren't safe from a bit of fungi. Results can be slow and problem solving is like shooting in the dark but I'm looking forward to the day it all pays off!

SLIME MOLD FACT!!! It was used in Japan to map and optimise their underground rail system by modelling the cities stations with a food source and then leaving the slime to figure out the most efficient way to the food source. Stunning that a group of basic cells can form a strategy that any standard human would have a hard time figuring out!

Photos never do it any justice, you've really got to see it grow for yourself. #zerowaste  #naturadesign  #natura  #fungus  #nature  #mycology  #fantasticfungi  #livingmaterials  #materialdrivendesign  #ecologicaldesign  #mushrooms  #growingmaterials  #fungalfutures  #biofabrication  #fungi  #productdesign  #bioart  #materialsmatter  #circulareconomy  #biocomposite  #naturalcomposite  #mycelium  #biodesign  #mushroomsofinstagram  #allthemushroomhastags 

I recently heard a theory that mushroom spores create clouds in our skies... thousands of spores make their way into the upper atmosphere and attract water vapour, causing the appearance of clouds and the release of rain droplets inoculated with various fungi. Though it might seem far fetched, I really hope that it is proven true because that would be awesome! Sidenote: Look how stunning this Agaric is! Best one I've found this season!

By far my favourite shot from today. When it rains, these little guys show themselves in there hundreds! Thank you to the team at Clumber Park for being a fountain of information on all things fungal.

The enoki mushrooms are bursting out to fruit. They're an interesting species as they're sensitive to their environmental conditions; if you increase the Co2 levels and reduce lighting to minimum, you can get these long, fine 'noodle' fruits that are damn tasty in a stir fry.

READY... SET... GROW! The lab is finally complete and it's time to start growing some lights in time for Christmas. Thank you to @ninelaivanova and @sebastiancoxltd for all the help and knowledge building this, I just hope my novice partition doesn't fall down anytime soon haha.

Growwwww my beauties!!! Thought I'd recently received a strain that was either a dud or damaged in shipping but it must of been a slow starter. Finally perfected grain to grain transferring too, time to turn these into amazing things.

Super giddy day today checking up on all the mushroom projects I've got going on at home. So many of them are going well, which is better than can be said for my previous attempts (touch wood). Most recently I've been trying to conquer grain to grain transfer of mycelium with these very picky species we've decided to use and it looks like I might of cracked it!

Unfortunately some of the culture samples become contaminated, but they produce a beautiful-looking 'war zone'. Sometimes unexpectedly, the mycelium will adapt and overcome these contaminants, creating genetics that are better adapted to fighting off intruders.

About a year ago I thought the strangest material I had worked with was edible jelly, that doesn't even compare to working with mycelium! The texture and makeup of the material varies so much, some of it feels like chewing gum, some pillow stuffing, some downright indescribable... Tomorrow's my last day and I would like to say thank you to everyone at @sebastiancoxltd for letting me in to the mushroom revolution, even if you don't have Yorkshire Tea, and of course cheers to @studiodan for the beers and the unscheduled, casual tutorial about my projects

Insert fun-guy joke here... It might look a bit disgusting, but the white 'fluff' you see here is mycelium, the root system of mushrooms and fungi. By using the process of spreading the mycelium, I'll be able to create compostable packaging out of agricultural waste. (fingers crossed)
