How cool and practical is this art/furniture?!

These bookshelves that can be taken apart and reconstructed into a coffin are pretty amazing. No, I’m not being morbid….just think about how awesome it is that you fill the shelves with items of importance or that were at some point a part of you, and that the same wood that holds components of your life eventually holds you. It’s also a cool statement about one’s relationship to death – that the owner is willing to acknowledge its eventual takeover, but also that they are in control of what surrounds them and is on display in life. The construction is thoughtful both as a design triumph and poetic musing. Not to mention that it’s resource efficient…

William Warren, nice work. Artis, thanks for making me aware of it.
