Multidisciplinary answers to the cooperative creation with fungi

The research into natural, sustainable raw materials connected to knowledge of materials and design is a developing branch of the contemporary design fields. Creation with live material makes a horizontal relation with the creator and the nature in the process of design. In the Art Faculty of Budapest Metropolitan University there are research and other projects of fungi and their borderlines. That is how mycelium is used a packaging material, functional furniture, acoustic panel, but the organism also inspires pattern samples, it grows literally in the hands of our students an autonomous piece solidifying its own psychology into material; and the crust of tinder fungus is used for a watch.

The event reflects to the collective consciousness of the majors which are connected with the material.
