Design of the Week: New Life from Death


Spanish designer, Martin Azua has created a way for new life to be created from death through this Biodegradable Urn. The Urn is made entirely of biodegradable materials including coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose, and inside contains a seed of a tree. The idea is that once the ashes have been added to the urn and planted in the soil, the seed will begin to germinate and grow into the tree of your choice.

We think this is a fantastic concept, which combines the lovely thought of life after death with an eco solution for the remains. We hope the Bio Urn catches on!
