Conch light

for Mycotex - 2023

Collaboration is key when it comes to designing something that stands out and is worth sharing during a fair like Salone del Mobile, says Dutch designer Marc Th. van der Voorn. The Conch light is the result of fruitful teamwork.

Aniela Hoitink (MYCOTEX) invited Marc to come up with a lamp design, entirely made of mycelium. A new material brings opportunities and hurdles to overcome. The lamp showcases the potential of mycelium.

Where the fashion industry likes to have seamless and flexible material, Marc asked for a more sturdy and stiff substance, to support the shape of the shell. The light is spread in different directions by the Conch’s shell, giving it its unique appearance when on or off.

Conch light is almost ready for its next phase; production and sales.
