shell by Mino Bressan from italy

designer's own words:

Shell is a biologic urn. Designed in biological cement a special material that absorbs CO2 and accelerates the growth of pigmented organisms.
The closed urn is given to relatives who can thrown it into the ocean. The cork is in cellulose pulp and it is biodegradable and dissolves in water.
The idea of the project is to remember the dead. In the ocean the Shell becames a particular habitat for many species of acquatic fauna, while on the seashore,thanks to the QR code above the urn, it is possible with a smartphone to discover the life of the deceased.
This is a new way to recall our loved ones.
