The Grow-It-Yourself Lamp combines the art of making with the power of nature in a truly sustainable fabrication process. Featuring Ecovative’s patented Mushroom® Material technology, the Grow. Lamp kit includes a bag of mushroom mycelium substrate, a lampshade form, growing instructions, a UL-certified pendant light set, and an optional table stand.
Through this experiential process, the user is the maker, connecting with the act of GROWING sustainable goods. It’s not just a lamp, it’s the future of design and YOU get to be a part of it.
The Grow. Lamp – the first designed by Danielle Trofe for Ecoative’s new grow it yourself product line — will be officially launched during NYCxDESIGN, 2017. These innovative lighting options will be on view at WantedDesign Brooklyn in Industry City from May 17-23, 2017, and available for sale at the event and via Ecovative’s online shop beginning May 17.
“Understanding the full lifecycle of a product helps you value it differently. We are continuously exploring ways to bring our innovative material science directly to the consumer. Empowering users to be a part of the growing process creates a greater understanding and connection to the objects, and to the effect those products have on their immediate environment and on the planet. Danielle Trofe’s imaginative design and commitment to our materials, creates the perfect formula for this collaboration.” – Ecovative co-founder and CEO Eben Bayer
“The overall goal of the Grow | Lamp is to challenge and change our ideas of what interior products are made from, how they’re made and ultimately where they will end up. We want to disrupt not only the way in which we manufacture goods, but how consumers participate with interior goods. Through this experiential process, the user becomes the maker, connecting with the future of how we might better fit in on this planet, by GROWING biodegradable goods. It’s not just a lamp, it’s the future of design and YOU get to be a part of it.” – Danielle Trofe
