A Living Matter with Terreform, Mitchell Joachim

APEX Media: A Living Matter: The Microorganisms Seeping Into Aircraft Manufacturing and Design 20 November 2019 by Valerie Silva.

"Mitchell Joachim, co-founder of architecture and urban design research group Terreform ONE, says, “Mycelium is also an amazing replacement for what would be used for insulation, cushions, Styrofoam or any kind of seating element. It’s literally found in nature, and we can control it. We grow it in a mold, and it shapes itself in seven days.” In collaboration with community biology lab Genspace, Terreform ONE has developed a series of benches using the material."

“A Living Matter” was originally published in the 9.5 December/January issue of APEX Experience magazine.


State of Extremes, Design Museum Holon with Terreform ONE, Mitchell Joachim

State of Extremes aims to show the potential of design to reveal, critique, resist, mitigate extremes and the mechanisms that drive them. At a time when our technologies, power structures and impact on the planet are engendering ever more extreme scenarios, we hope "State of Extremes" might serve as a call for moderation.
