SoSe 2017 - Projekt “Optimismus” - Chris Freudenberger

“With the use of fungi many man-made ecological problems could be solved. I wanted to show how easy it is to cultivate fungi for gourmet and medical use.

The development of today‘s world questions more and more the way of food consumption in our society. Local production of food becomes more important because of soil pollution, waste of natural resources and urbanisation. Fresh gourmet mushrooms are delicate and healthy, they are full of important nutritions and you can easily grow them at home. Mykes is an object, designed to grow mushrooms indoors on a wall structure, which integrates itself in the living space like a house plant.

Mushrooms are one of the main recyclers in our ecosystem. You can grow them on organic waste with low consumption of resources. For example oyster mushrooms are easy to cultivate on coffee grounds. Unlike crop plants the growth time of mushrooms is much shorter — you can harvest them cyclically in three to four weeks.

Wer wir sind
