It seems designers in Barcelona have a neck for creating biodegradable urns. While Gerard Moliné’s Bios urn transforms into a tree to remember the beloved one, Carla Cava’s Arum is a ring of ashes that creates a place of remembrance on a specific tree.
I came across Arum at the MID Design Ideas Markt which aims to connect creatives and entrepreneurs with companies and investors, and helps to find funding and business opportunities for innovative projects with a strong design component. Cava is currently looking for a producer to comercialise Arum. Since designing the product as her final year project at design school, she has left Barcelona and founded Den Studio in Melbourne, Australia, which is where you can find her if you are interested in a collaboration to get the product on the market.
