Théo Chauvirey

Théo Chauvirey joined the Speculatif Life Biolab at Milieux Institute in March 2017 while completing his Master of Design degree. His research speculates on the use of mushroom-based biomaterials in the field of public transport as an alternative to common oil-based composite materials. While working on his research, Chauvirey organized in February 2018 a workshop on mycelium culture to make lampshades and he also collaborated with bioartist WhiteFeather Hunter on the Bucci dress: a bacterial dress cultivated in kombucha.

Chauvirey completed his MDes in December 2018 and hopes to continue his research on mycelium and bacterial cellulose and other processes of biofabrication.
