During the past years the construction industry has shown an ever growing interest in innovation and sustainability, focusing on both environmental impacts and the improvement of living comforts. Within such framework, Mycoplast and INDEXLAB engaged in a collaborative project, aiming to design highly performing panels for acoustic optimisation. Utilising specific categories of mycelium-based materials and their porous qualities, it is possible to optimise the combination between sound absorption and diffraction. The resulting products are manufactured through the usage of robotic arms suitable for producing the tools (thermoformed moulds) in which the products are cultivated. Mycoplast and INDEXLAB will be showcasing the initial outcomes of their collaboration during TECHNOLOGY HUB 2017, the professional event of innovative technologies in Milan.
