“Nature to be commanded must be obeyed.”

– Francis Bacon

Nature, which works in infinite cyclicality, inspired generations of products and images. But only in recent years, we are witnessing the application of natural principles in the design and creation process. Imagine using living materials in growing different products, to create a self-sustaining system. MYC is a loudspeaker system grown from such a living material – fungus. The project carries out the research and development of organic matter produced from methylation, and examines the ability to grow material and give it predefined shapes and properties.
