Organic Burial Pods Turn Cemeteries Into Sacred Forests
Egg-shaped biodegradable containers offer a refreshing alternative to coffins
Imagine being able to continue caring for a loved one that has passed away—would that make grieving an easier process? Another good question to ask is, would this help in keeping the legacy of your loved one alive? Capsula Mundi is a burial alternative where the deceased is placed inside an organic burial pod. Designed by Italian designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel, the end goal is to turn cemeteries into sacred forests.
The project Capsula Mundi aims to change your mind about death. While most believe death is the end of life on earth and the beginning of a life elsewhere, Capsula Mundi shows that death is far from the end, but instead the beginning of a new life journey that will benefit Mother Earth in the future. As the designers described, it’s a “way back to nature.”
