Mexico Bandido Studio has designed a mushroom-shaped table lamp Buna after trying various fungal plants. The design team used different designs to create the diffuse lighting needed for Buna lamps.
“Mushrooms are the same idea in studios because they exist in different ecosystems across Mexico,” says Bandido Studio. “There is not much difference between the different forms we can find in the fungal world because its main function is to spread fungal spores.”
In order to create a "soft and round shape" like a mushroom, the studio chose to make a lamp from metal. Buna lamps come in two colors, including soft brown and indigo that resemble mushroom tones.
