SOULACE wants to relieve the pain of the loss of dear ones by creating ethical and esthetic products which do good. Good in trying to create cheaper and durable products; good by producing in workshops for people with reduced ability; good because they should create a memorable experience for moments in life confronted with loss.
The PLEXUS coffin combines all these factors again, but in a unique combination. Simple to produce with minimized impact materials: natural felt and eco-mdf (no-impact glues to hold the fibers and the construction), no metals connection materials. The formal aspect combines these to materials to create a humanized and soft touch capsule. The invisible construction enhances the burning process so a time reduction thus an energy reduction can be realised. At the heart of the lid there is a memory plaque which can be etched by family and friends as a token of remembrance for the departed.
