This Eco-Bookshelf Can Be Reassembled Into A Coffin After The Owner’s Death

Designer William Warren created the ‘Shelves for Life’, a set of bookshelves that can be reassembled into a coffin. A lot of people loved the idea of Warren’s design.

“The wood will color, the surfaces will mark and stain, and over the years and the furniture will become a part of you,” Warren states. “When you die, the shelves can be taken apart and reassembled as a coffin. The brass plate under the bottom shelf, that tells the story about this transformation, is then flipped over and your dates inscribed on it.”
