We have presented articles in our blogs, which show organic, biological 3-D printing projects, such as printing skin, organs, and making prosthetics. Here is an article, which has an artist combining 3-D printing and organic materials to make furniture!
Yes, this chair, 3-D Printed with straw, biopolymer, and mycelium (the organic basis of mushrooms and other fungi) actually lives! It “breathes”, takes in nutrients, and “grows”.
3-D Printed Chair from Biopolymer and Mycelium
Mycelium plays a significant role in the decomposition of plant material, which contributes to the organic fraction of soil, Their growth releases carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. The mycelium of mycorrhizal fungi increases the efficiency of water and nutrient absorption of most plants and confers resistance to some plant pathogens. Mycelium is an important food source for many soil invertebrates.
