Project Womb

Project Womb

“After birth, the second biggest event in life is death. And, yet, across cultures,
our relationship with it seems based on avoidance and denial. We asked ourselves, why isn’t death treated as naturally and gracefully as birth? Why can’t we perceive it in a more positive way? And redesign its rituals to reveal, rather than conceal, who we really are?”

Conceived by Diddo, Project Womb is not simply a restyled funeral casket, it’s a container for impressions and memories you can record and update over your lifetime, providing the means of sharing your story and personal insights, in your own words, pictures and videos.

Bio Light

The bio-light is a cellular light array filled with bioluminescent bacteria or fluorescent proteins, that emit different frequencies of light when fed by methane and composted material.

Each cell is connected via silicon tubes to the food source, (which is drawn from a reservoir at the base) creating a closed loop system for the living material.

The bio-light is just one element of the Microbial Home System conceived by Philips Design.
