Bios is a funeral urn made of biodegradable materials like coconut shell, compact peat and cellulose. Inside the urn, there is a tree seed which can be replaced by any other kind of seed, shoot or plant suitable for the chosen place. When the urn is planted, the seed germinates and starts to grow.
Bios Urn is a container for cremated ashes, made from compacted coconut shells, organic fertilizer and tree seedlings. As the container biodegrades, a seed will sprout, recycling you or your loved one back into the circle of life. It transforms the burial ritual in a regeneration and return to life through nature. As a result, cemeteries become forests.

Bios is a mortuary urn made from biodegradable materials: coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose. Inside it contains the seed of a tree.
