INTRODUCING the WTF! EXHIBITION
The WTF (We The Future) Exhibition is about redefining what future technology is by simply asking the question of “What is The Future?”. Mycotech Lab (“MYCL”), a mushroom mycelium producer for a lineup of sustainable mushroom-based materials, realized that future technology should be an innovation which will make sure there will be a future for our children, utilize waste instead of becoming pollutant, bio-based tech instead of fossil based, circular cycle instead of linear process, and growing material without killing any animals.
To make people aware of this campaign, MYCL has decided to create more impact with a bigger market. Japan is a country that fits the MYCL vision and mission and will become a second home to launch an exhibition and MYCL Japan facility in Nagano, Japan.
This exhibition represents a stepping stone to introduce MYCL and MYCL products and materials, which are made from 100% from mushrooms, to the wider global community.

Shrüm is a truncated tetrahedral object that can be used as a humble stool. The modularity makes it applicable to a wide variety of furniture and spatial arrangement. It comes in warm natural beige color with irregular wood chips texture.
The “modular but organic” appearance comes from weight-to-strength and geometry optimization.
An eco conscious stool for your sustainable future.
