Imagine chairs, tables, and desks literally grown in a factory in upstate New York in a week.
Mycelium, “nature’s glue,” binds together agricultural substrates to make natural foams and particleboard—just like the furniture all around you, but grown. Ecovative Interiors is a line of completely grown products for the home and office.
Our seating, accessories, and work surfaces are built from our MycoBoard™ engineered wood, our MycoFoam™ plastic foam replacement, and our MycoFlex™ biopolymer. Using mycelium, we’ve biofabricated an entire line of furniture that is healthy, safe, and sustainable.
Ecovative’s core mission is to envision, develop, produce, and market Earth friendly materials, which, unlike conventional synthetics, can have a positive impact on our planet’s ecosystem.
We are committed to working with industry and consumers to rid the world of toxic, unsustainable materials. We believe in creating products that enable companies and individuals to achieve their sustainability goals, without having to sacrifice on cost or performance.
Mushroom® Materials do not degrade without exposure to living organisms, such as that found in soil biota, and moisture. You can think of it like an unfinished piece of wood. A wooden table isn’t going to decompose without exposure to the right conditions. Like most things you’d keep in your home or in a warehouse, Mushroom Materials will last. But if you leave that wooden table outside, or put wood chips into a compost pile, it will naturally decompose. The same is true with Mushroom Materials.
