Rise and Design: Designing Death - Friday, 8th October 2021

Friday 8th October 2021, 9.30 - 12.30

You know what they say about death and taxes. Well, we can't do anything about the latter, but there are lots of businesses taking a fresh, innovative approach to what used to be a very grey, depressing subject.

So we'll be hearing from a few of them, and perhaps they'll inspire us to apply great design to other, unappreciated areas of business.


Speakers include -

Gina Czarnecki, Koffins

Koffins are 'good for the planet and good for the soul', being 100% natural, biodegradable and fully customisable. Gina will tell us more about her inspiration, her journey so far and her vision.


More speakers will be announced soon
