Loop Biotech has developed the Living Coffin in collaboration with Studio Hendrikx.

The Living Coffin is an environmentally conscious product that revolutionises the burial experience.

This innovative coffin, grown from mushrooms and upcycled hemp fibre, offers a sustainable solution to traditional burials, empowering individuals to leave a positive environmental legacy.

By naturally decomposing and enriching the soil, the Living Coffin eliminates harmful pollutants and nourishes the Earth, creating a harmonious cycle of life and death.

"This groundbreaking product not only honours loved ones but also serves as a powerful testament to our commitment to preserving and enhancing the environment, even in our final moments," told Loop Biotech.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design (consumer) category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
