In the thicket of grass – cardboard mushrooms, on the tree – wool mistletoe, hidden in the branches – a spider’s web, in the sky – a plush cloud. In September 2011, during the mushrooming, the Foundation of Forms and Shapes changed the Culture Park in Powsin into a forest of uncanny installations. The success of previously mentioned project triggered its “sequel” – the mushrooming in the capital of Czech Republic!

The event in Warsaw was welcomed with warm enthusiasm, that is why Iza Rutkowska the project’s coordinator and creator decided to move it to Czech soil where mushrooming is considered to be a national tradition. On the fourth day of November 2012, the cardboard mushrooms and morels, designed by Robert Czajka, were gather by czech citizens in the Stromovka park. This year’s mushrooming challenge stood open before the designers form Czech Republic : Studio DeForm, Trash Made/Linda Čihařová, Qubus, Jania Prokaič, Jan Cincera and Daniel Gonzalez. At the entrance to the Park Stromovka, everyone received a special Atlas of Mushrooms and (fortunately with a map!:) set off in search of mushrooms and exceptional instalations.

It was great Sunday with the Polish innovativie thinking and the best Czech design. In addition – in nature.
