Sylva (meaning: ‘of the forest’) is a living/non-living piece, that goes beyond mere aesthetic; it embodies the harmonious alliance between human creativity and the natural world. By using mycelium, the intricate network of fungal threads, on a substrate collected from the forest, Sylva represents a collaboration with nature itself. By co-creating with nature, I aim to highlight the beauty and complexity of natural systems while emphasizing the importance of our symbiotic relationship with the environment. Sylva is a reminder that we are not separate from nature, but rather integral parts of a larger interconnected web of life.
This side table is grown with mycelium and it’s made up of only natural organic materials.
