MYX consist of plant fibre and mushroom-mycelium. The material is grown into shape during a period of 2-3 weeks, where the mushroom mycelium grows together the plant fibres into a flexible and soft living textile. After 2 weeks you can harvest the healthy Oyster mushrooms. The waste product  can then be dried and used as a lightweight material, that is both organic, compostable and sustainable.

The mushroom mycelium stabilizes the construction by physically growing together the material behaving as a glue between the fibres. The MYX consists of waste – the mushroom organism comes from a commercial mushroom farm and the plant fibres is a leftover material from the textile industry, MYX is a optimized end-waste product with a nutritious food product during the growing cycle.
