Furniture-made-from-soil-and-baked-like-bread-by-Erez-Nevi-Pana_dezeen_2

So trying to get my teaching cap on this evening. I would like to start the term out exploring and critiquing this concept. For many years the exciting thing in design schools had been the ability of students to design the Machine that would manifest the product. Now this trend seems to be going deeper, and the very material is being designed. Case in point, this work by young designer Erez Nevi Pana who devised a compound of soil and fungus that can be baked into stable conditions. This stool is the first furniture sized work and it will be interesting to see how this trend progresses.
