Ongehoord: Kunnen schimmels de wereld veranderen? [MAAKBAAR lezing]

Lecture in Dutch

Meet mycelium, the underground fungus fibres of mushrooms that are becoming a popular green material of the future in fashion and design. Winnie Poncelet (Magma Nova) introduces you to the bio design movement in Belgium and abroad: an innovative community of scientists and designers who look for tomorrow's materials in bio labs. Kristel Peters (Cojak) shares her experiences as shoe designer with natural, 'growing' materials that can serve as alternatives for the polluting leather and textile industry. In her project Rethinking High Fashion Shoes, she dreams of a high quality, circular shoe made from mycelium.
