Cardboard coffin

A sustainable coffin made of cardboard

// Material qualities              // Cardboard               // Sustainability

During this project I had to focus on a materials qualities and design a product that uses the material to the fullest. After researching several material I decided to work with cardboard.  Through experimentation and testing I explored the opportunities in the material. I decided to design a coffin for cremation made by corrugated cardboard. Corrugated cardboard is strong, cheap and flammable and therefore I saw the opportunity to create a cheap and more environmental friendly coffin type. It can be customised trough colour, print, writing or drawing and create a more personalised funeral experience.
