It’s a proud moment to see ROOTS receiving the 1st prize in the category "Sustainable development / ecodesign - Excluding industrial design category" at the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2018 Gala.
A life ends, another begins. INÉDI’s Roots funeral urn is designed to see a tree spring from the ashes of a loved one, offering a soul-soothing and eco-friendly ritual to root one’s mourning.
In partnership with Muses and a researcher in horticulture, while being limited to a budget of $30,000, the team executed a series of tests to target the ideal natural and inoffensive materials to use. The cement at the base of the urn is made of coffee grounds and lime, fused with gelatine. The top of the pot, in which cuttings are rooted, is made of clay.
