Blast Studio

From urban waste to mycelium 3d printing.
We collect take-away waste around London from cafés, restaurants and public collections points. Using mycelium, fungus’ root network, we degrade the organic based waste and transform it into a resistant biomaterial. Using 3d printing we make our living designs inspired by nature. We created an algorithm that generates shapes conducive to the growth of the mycelium.
The Biological Laboratory of Architecture and Sensitive Technologies is a group founded in 2018 with the aim of exploring the possible relationships between new technologies and living things in order to develop new processes of artistic and architectural creation.
Digital design and manufacturing tools are at the heart of the studio’s experiments in design, scenography and architecture projects. Blast Studio develops a research to explore new ways to bring nature and technology into dialogue.
Inspired by nature we created a new ecosystem in the city, where we recycle urban waste into outstanding sustainable objects and furniture thanks to living organisms.
