Design A Day: Coffin Bookshelf

This one is a two for one. A Coffin Bookshelf will be the only bookshelf you need. It constantly reminds to carefully examine how much you possess, because you can't take it with you. It has a function of organizing the items you do end up owning. Then, at the end of your life, the coffin aspect becomes functional as all items are cleared and willed away to others, and you inhabit it. It's made of sustainably harvested douglas fir from Oregon.
