TREE COFFINS

This concept is different from most you’ll probably read. An Italian company created an eco-friendly alternative to coffins. It is called ‘The Capsula’ developed by Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel. This project is an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased’s body intro nutrients for a tree that will grow out of the body’s remains. It can sound a bit disturbing but this concept has quite some future growth potential.

Each person choosing this way to being buried can choose their favourite tree. The body will be placed inside an egg in a fetal position, a seed is planted above the body and planted into the ground. It looks like a massive seed with a body inside, kind off like the new circle of life. It is like where life began. This concept will change the standard creepy cemeteries into sacred forests where you can remember your loved one peacefully.

This concept covers different social issues and trends that are important in todays world. Such as sustainability, rising social tensions and personalization.
