RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
After picking this mushroom in the fields of South Bohemia, the designer experienced its 'magical' psychedelic effects. The mushrooms appeared to him to glow and pulsate with a kind of 'life force'. He decided to capture this experience by using its form as a lamp design, the electricity and light bringing it to life. To create this the designer aimed to innovatively combine 3D printing technology with the hand crafted wooden form so the entire piece could be produced in house, with ecological materials. Research and experimentation were carried out in his workshop and with design software.

CHALLENGE:
Carving the wood to create a thin stem and # dimensional curve without cutting into the cable within.
