These shelves, which are part of the RealLimited series, are amazing. Artist Katharina Mischer chose an endangered Austrian fungi species and translated them into a limited design edition - fungi species sculpted from tin are shown growing on an old 'rotten' wooden board.
These designs are a limited edition in which each tin mushroom is numbered, and represent one mushroom left in reality. We love the design of this luscious furniture and it supports a good cause too - part of the money going to environmental projects that try to save the specific fungi species. A limited design for unlimited life.
