The result of my final thesis in industrial design is three coffins and three urns made of a biodegradable chalk plastic. The calcium works as a neutralizer of the acid leakage from cemeteries. Free forming opens up for endless design possibilities and fulfills the demand for variation and personalization. Benefits with the coffins, compared to ordinary ones, are that they only contain one material no screws, lacquer etc. is added. They are stackable and weigh much less than wooden ones and are therefore better concerning transportation and ergonomics.
