Description

Picchu is a fusion between a light sculpture and side table, grown with mycelium and crafted with glass, inviting contemplation on the dichotomy between living and non-living matter. Its design juxtaposes the structured, geometric grid-like pattern with the organic, network-like growth inherent to mycelium, creating a visual dialogue between order and spontaneity. The multiple prisms of the glass element allows for a play of light both day and at night.

This object is custom-made and the texture of each piece is somewhat different.

About Kamilla Csegzi Studio Visit Showroom →

Kamilla Csegzi is a Hungarian architect and artist/designer currently based in NYC, creating spaces and objects that bridge between the precarity of people and nature. Working across the scales of architecture, installations and objects, Kamilla's creative process is instigated by the power of the surrounding material and natural world to shape and define humans, to articulate rituals, movements, behavior, gestures and relationships. To harness this symbiosis, her design engages natural processes like movement of air, growth, sedimentation, evaporation, vitrification, or the decay and transformations of material waste. In the more recent years, her focus has been on research and design with mycelium, the intricate network of thread-like structures found in fungi, that possesses a remarkable ability to transform and adapt. By harnessing the regenerative potential of mycelium, she aims to create pieces that undergo a transformative metamorphosis, reflecting the dynamic and positive change from decay to growth. Instead of being the form-giver to an object or the follower of a function, her craft gives up part of the control to co-create with nature. The result are pieces with structural integrity while also possessing a living essence, blurring the boundary between living and non-living things.
