Life Series - The Furniture Experiment of Saving Land Resources  / 2016.06.14




We come to earth alive, and back to earth when we are dead. Death is the destination where everyone will arrive.

In modern life, people always say they don’t afraid of death, but when it come to real discussion, they avoid talking death, they respect it, but with fear.



The mortality rate in China is increasing due to the aggravated aging issue. 9 million of life end every year. How many more years could we bury our beloved in these  limited lands? Facing to the scarce land resources, building of graveyards lack concept of ecological balance. Moreover, the high cost of grave is a heavy burden to  the living relatives. To live is already difficult, why don’t we make the death more ease? 



Thus, we bring up a nice idea——




Let the bone ash of people and pets go into daily life by releasing land resources and eliminating the need of graves. We should be considerate to the living and circulate the death. Missing infiltrate into everyday touch, bone ash blend in the circulation of object to object. When the law of life in universe come to a conservation, it  is completion then. 



Bentu Design is in action, begin with the respect to living and concern for death, begin with the life of pet. The life series rescues the missing from the boundless lost, making the life continued in time. 


A hold of bone ash, a handful of sand, a flow of water, will save your pet’s smile on world, deliver your missing to she or he. Combining the bone ash of pet and cement with modern technique, the life series aim to create utensils which we use everyday. 


 

We take advantage of hologram and make the photos of pet presented on the products. With the two dimensional code technique, the product can be connected to internet  platform, then share the solace and remove your sorrow. Inside the product, we can insert a sensor and chip, which will make some voice of your pet came out of the  product when touch it.

When the second hand start ticking, the boundary is broken. Last second, this second, next second; the past, the moment, the future. The pass life go into the normal life  again.



The pets were the important part of people’s life and now they become the element of your life, the sweetie is back. Peace or sorrow, lonely or miss, they always by your side like usual. From voice to image, from graphic to multidimension, give your pet a warm home and be together forever. Death is not an end, but nother beginning!




To treat death in a normalized and smart way is a inevitable trend in future! We want to give it a try though it’s hard to accept it for people at the current stage. A team should  not focus on the business only. The value of life and the society situation are worth thinking about. Bentu Design always keep doing experimental and prospective  research on product development. Beside the business profit, we insist on concerning human society.



As long as it’s of benefit to human society, we will make every effort to achieve it even though we need to give up some profit. We are going to so some “silly” things!
