If you're tired of the same old bathroom tiles, we've got an exciting solution for you. Introducing the MYCO-ALGA interior tiling system, a sustainable and biodegradable option that will transform your bathroom into a work of art. Created by bioMATTERS, these tiles are not only visually stunning but also environmentally friendly.

A New Approach to Tile Design

The MYCO-ALGA tiles are made from natural and organic waste that has been upcycled, combined with living organisms. This innovative process involves several sustainable steps, including digital design, 3D printing, organism growth, bio-pigment enrichment, and fabrication. The waste materials are first ground into a paste-like substrate, which serves as the foundation for the tiles.

From Paste to Perfection

Once the paste is ready, it is 3D printed into customized shapes. These shapes are then placed in a controlled environment where they are cultivated for two weeks. During this time, the mycelium, a filamentous structure produced by fungi, binds the material together. The tiles are then heated in convection ovens, transforming them into lightweight yet strong and rigid materials. Finally, the bio-pigments from harvested algae are applied to the tiles, giving them their unique appearance.

An Organism-Inspired Mosaic

The result is a set of truly one-of-a-kind tiles that resemble crawling organisms. The non-repeating patterns create a visually striking mosaic that will be a conversation starter for anyone who visits your bathroom. Not only do these tiles add a touch of artistry to your space, but they are also 100% sustainable, making them a perfect choice for environmentally conscious individuals.

So, if you're ready to give your bathroom a makeover that goes beyond the ordinary, consider the MYCO-ALGA 3D printed tiles. Not only will you be adding a unique and visually stunning design element, but you'll also be making an eco-friendly choice. Transform your bathroom into a work of art today!
