Design studio Aivan

Aivan is a Nordic design and innovation agency based in Finland with the aim to (in everything they do) create competitive advantage and industry leadership for their clients.

One example is the Korvaa headphones where fungi, yeast-based bioplastics and other microbial materials were used in the headphones created by Aivan in collaboration with researchers. The headband is in 3D-printed bioplastic based on lactic acid from yeast, and the “leather” is a fungal mycelium. The headphones constitute an experimental collaboration investigating the design and functional possibilities of microbial materials.
