From Grow to Glow

Danielle Trofe crafts this modern lamp with mushrooms. No, really. The Brooklyn designer puts mushroom roots called mycelium in a mold and… mushBOOM: a velvety, sophisticated shade is born. 100% biodegradable, it's a truly sustainable (and, we confess, slightly geeky) answer to high-end lighting. To finish the piece, build the base—made from salvaged ash wood—without any tools, and go from grow to glow. Handmade in New York.
