Lisa Jongejans | Verbinding - "VERBINDING, a new and beautiful farewell"
Lisa graduated from Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. She focuses on biosdesign, researching new materials and circular processes.
"Verbinding" ('connection') is about personal grief processing. The concept focuses on innovation in this traditional sector. She designs a farewell concept for after resomation, the environmentally friendly alternative to burial and cremation.
This is reflected in a series of urns made of mycelium, which can be buried and are 100% biodegradable without polluting the earth. This creates a new farewell ritual with which the body is returned to nature.
