“ Grow It Yourself ” – A Demonstration of Mushroom Materials

WantedDesign NYC Brooklyn @ Industry City
May 10th, 12-2pm

Ecovative will team up with Danielle Trofe, a Brooklyn-based designer, to demonstrate
how Grow It Yourself Mushroom® Materials can be used to create objects and products
from sustainable materials. The workshop will take place on Sunday, May 10th from 12pm-2pm at 220 36th Street in Industry City , Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Mushroom ® Materials are high performing, environmentally responsible alternatives to
traditional plastic foams. Created by combining locally sourced agricultural byproducts
and mushroom mycelium (essentially the root structure of mushrooms), these materials
are grown using the power of nature. Mushroom® Materials are able to achieve a
variety of performance properties, making them an innovative and sustainable medium
for designers and furniture makers.

Ecovative recently announced its Grow It Yourself (GIY) program , through which
designers, students, innovators, and educators can purchase the raw Mushroom®
Materials for a variety of applications. The program aims to empower anyone to
experiment and grow products and designs using these compostable materials. GIY
material will be sold onsite during the workshop at WantedDesign NYC Brooklyn.

Danielle Trofe will join Ecovative to show how she incorporates Mushroom® Materials
into her design process to grow sustainable lamps and planters. Select products from
her Mush-Lume and Mush-Bloom collections will be on display. The workshop will provide a hands on experience in working with Mushroom® Materials. Instructions on how to create custom forms and tooling, as well as tips and tricks on how to grow a successful GIY project, will be demonstrated. All ages welcome.
