Inspired by our theme of spirituality, Tom Dixon set out to reinvent the coffin, an object he’d been trying to overhaul for 17 years. The traditional coffin, he contends, is clumsy, gloomy and expensive, while environmentally friendly alternatives lack in both quality and visual appeal. His solution takes the form of a sustainable sarcophagus made from a cellulose compound with its origins in papier-mâché. Originally used in the restoration of artworks, it has been adapted by architect Riccardo Cavaciocchi for use in making furnishings. Its organic texture evokes the return of ashes to ashes, and its sculptural form brings humanity to funerary moments. Says Dixon, ‘The only thing certain in life is death, so why not give your departed ones a beautiful send-off?’
