For the first time, MycoWorks is able to offer high-volume production capacity of Reishi™ to their luxury clientele after the grand-opening of their 136,000 square foot (footprint) facility in October. The luxury sector has eagerly awaited this scale-up in order to incorporate Reishi™ into collections. For Ligne Roset, the volumes investment will be used to begin implementing and manufacturing products in Ligne Roset’s collections. The esteemed design house will begin to integrate Reishi™ into products soon to be available on the market. This announcement comes after months of testing Reishi™ in Ligne Roset’s product lineup after their top management showed strong interest in MycoWorks technology.

Dedicated to environmental stewardship in the French business sector, Ligne Roset is entering a new era of sustainable design by reserving high-volumes of MycoWorks’ hallmark luxury material Reishi™. In August, the furniture company announced its plans to incorporate new lower-impact materials like Reishi™ in applications across its products.

As both Ligne Roset’s and MycoWorks’ cultures are rooted in innovation and craftsmanship, this partnership is a natural fit.

“Taking care to work with top-grade materials that are as good for people and for our environment as possible has been part of the company and family’s ethos for generations,” says Antoine Roset, CEO of Ligne Roset. “Our partnership with MycoWorks furthers our commitment to ethical and sustainable development with the high-end quality we’re known for, leaning into innovation and the opportunity to redefine the legacy of Made in France design.”
