In our second online Fab Meetup surrounding our FabFuture exploration with the focus on waste, we have Mycotech a bio-tech startup from Bandung, Indonesia that aims to create high-performance materials by utilising agricultural wastes of mushroom farming while empowering the farmers at the same time.

We will be talking about growing mushrooms, how mycelium – the root system of mushrooms can contribute to a new generation of materials and how this will affect our future, particularly the future of fashion, architecture and design.

  • Leather-like material made from mushroom

  • How mushrooms can change the future of design

  • Mushroom as a building material

About our speaker

  • Mycotech

    Mycotech started in 2012 as mushroom gourmet producers and soon realised that mushrooms can save the world. After one year of growing mushrooms, they found that their mushroom grow-bag became harden and hard to breakdown. Since then, they have initiated tonnes of research to develop this material.
