Do you like that bookshelf up above? You do? Well, how would you like to be buried in it?
Designer William Warren's clever Shelves for Life project from 2006
...is a self-initiated project to further explore ideas of built-in sentimentality within our possessions. The aim is to make stronger emotional relationships with our belongings and encourage life-long use.
The shelves are CNC cut in oak veneered plywood to the customers measurements. They are intended to be used throughout life as storage for personal belongings. On death, the shelves are dismantled and rebuilt as a coffin.
