Session 5 | Mushroom Material Technology
Presenter: Molly Gole, Gunlocke, Business Development Manager

When you think of mushrooms, you are most likely thinking about the edible kind. However, what if you knew that mushrooms could be used for packaging, used in place of engineered woods, or even as a replacement for leather, all without the use of glues, resins, harmful chemicals or off-gassing? Join us to learn about the environmental, sustainability and human health benefits of mushroom material technology, and how you could incorporate this innovative material into your next interior design or architectural project.
