This set of headphones is made from microbes —
Finnish design house Aivan, in collaboration with Synbio Powerhouse, has created the Korvaa, the world’s first headset made with microbially grown materials. Using mycelium, a fungus’ vegetative system, these headphones are 100‑percent biodegradable. While they are still in the prototype stage, one day you may be able to listen to your inflight playlist through a zero‑waste headset.

Designed in collaboration with Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama, the getups feature harnesses and combat boots – a perfect fit for BTS’s fashion‑forward look.
