The soft shine from Mycel gives an almost mysterious feeling and spreads the light close to its surface. The result gives the room a calm and magical feeling, a bit like when you are in the woods and drawn to the bright spots in a glade. The lamp is asymmetrical and sewn like a bag of the material Tyvek, which is stiff and durable while resembling paper in its structure. The name Mycel comes from the vegetative part of fungi, a multi-purified nutrient that absorbs nutrients. When you see it in the ground, it shines white.

Mycel was specially designed for the Understory exhibition at Designgalleriet in Stockholm 6-23 February 2018
