Designer William Warren has unveiled his coffin-shaped shelving unit creation called Shelves For Life. Made from solid plywood, this unique shelving system is designed to serve your storage needs from now until the end of your life. As your time arrived, the bookshelf can be arranged into a coffin.
“Shelves For Life is a self-initiated project to further explore ideas of built-in sentimentality within our possessions. The aim is to make stronger emotional relationships with our belongings and encourage life-long use. The shelves are CNC cut in oak veneered plywood to the customers measurements. They are intended to be used throughout life as storage for personal belongings. On death, the shelves are dismantled and rebuilt as a coffin.” — William Warren
