Fungkee is a conceptual brand identity for future biomaterials. Fungi have a wide spectrumof properties including water repellence, colour and fragrance. The bioleather is produced by bacteria but not water repellent and the colour is unstable which ultimately leads to premature degradation.
Together with Radboud University, we are developing a water repellent 100% fungal coating to improve the functional design of bioleather which is chemical-free.
