diamant coffin

 

 

 

jacob jensen design set out to break the mold of traditional coffin designs by creating a contemporary version with the danish coffin maker tommerup kister. the diamant coffin series takes design cues from diamonds, a symbol of perpetuity. the coffin features sharp edges, much like a diamond with the highest point aligned with the heart line. organic cotton lines the inside printed with a butterfly pattern, while the coffin itself is made from nordic birch plywood. while most coffin use precious hardwoods, birch plywood is a more sustainable alternative. jacob jensen design also developed a matching urn series for cremation options. while this design doesn’t completely rethink the burial process, it does address this often overlooked area with a modern sustainable perspective.

  • It would be a shame to bury or burn these, whereas I wouldn’t mind burning or burying a traditional coffin.

  • If anyone has had to choose a coffin in their life – they will know how far perfect the available designs are….They are mostly horrid, baroque, nightmares.

    This is a nice alternative.
