Diamant Series: Modern Coffins and Urns

A collaboration between Jacob Jensen and Tommerup Kister, these modern coffins and urns are suitable for those who care about looking good even in the afterlife.

According to Jacob Jensen, “the idea was to bring together 100 years of funeral directing experience with the absolute cutting edge of Scandinavian design.”

The result is the Diamant Series, an angular minimalist simple design in which the highest point on the coffin is in line with the heart of the deceased. Also, the flat surface on the top serves as a special space for a single flower. They are made of Nordic Birch plywood and finished with lacquer and either black or white silk matte water-based paint. The coffin interiors are upholstered with a butterfly-patterned organic cotton, symbolizing the soul leaving the body.
