Objects For Dying: An investigation on home funerals, their impact on environmental sustainability and family grieving processes, and how to facilitate one effectively.

Objects for Dying reimagines traditional funerals by introducing sustainable, personal elements into end-of-life practices. It promotes home funerals as an intimate, cost-effective alternative, centered on a multi-functional day bed that serves for daily relaxation and as a final resting place. This approach emphasizes customization, cultural relevance, and sustainability, reducing costs and providing families with a meaningful, emotionally supportive farewell.
