Eco-designer Danielle Trofe and Ecovative have teamed up to develop a Grow-It-Yourself-Lamp Kit that lets users “grow” their own lampshades in a few a simple steps. The kit contains a substrate of mushroom mycelium, the roots of mushroom along with a basic hanging pendant set.

The company has patented this technology, which lets you mix mushroom substrate with water and flour, and then sit back watching your beautiful lamp “bloom” over time, writes Inhabitat.

Earlier, Danielle Trofe has also grown brilliant Mush-Lume lamps from fungi, as she leverages innovation to harmonize the relation between “going green” and consumerist culture.
