Rest In Pets: Biodegradable cardboard pet caskets

The death of a beloved pet can be hugely painful, and it’s difficult to plan for such a sad event. But think back to your early childhood memories of pets passing away. Goldfish flushed unceremoniously down the toilet. Guinea pigs and bunnies wrapped in old tea towels and cats squashed into shoeboxes. Surely our furry family members are worth a bit of forethought?

Collaborating with Rest In Pets, we designed and tested a set of flat-packed, cardboard products that finally gives pet lovers an option. The smaller designs use a classic coffin shape, a well known visual metaphor that everyone can relate to. It adds a sense of solemn dignity. For the large casket, we developed a new hexagonal shape. At the end of their lives, cats are best farewelled curled up... maybe remembering one of their many afternoon naps.
