as the saying goes ‘build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door.’ while this mousetrap by sarah dery doesn’t improve the functionality of the product it does attempt to treat the killing of the mouse with more respect. dery created this unique mousetrap package after noting the close relationship between mice and people and the brutal nature of mousetraps. her design solution was a cardboard trap which is shaped like an iconic coffin. this serves the function of being easier to handle while treating the dead animal with respect. the final package can then be buried. dery designed the trap while studying under professor sylvain allard at UQAM in montreal, and don’t worry no animals were harmed in the making.
