3D Printing a Living Object: Furniture

Designer Eric Klarenbeek has used 3D printing in a revolutionary way we've not seen before: printing a living piece of furniture. 
 
The Dutch designer 3D printed a chair (with an amazing design) from straw material (not seen before) and added living fungus (also not seen before). 
 
The "Mycelium Chair" includes a very thin exterior shell of "bioplastic", which we suspect is common PLA plastic. The idea is that the fungus grows and gradually consumes the straw, leaving a structure that should be "strong enough to support a person".
 
We're not sure what to make of this development; the design is amazing and the approach, revolutionary. But is this a practical technique for the future? We won't know until someone tries to sit on it.
