Inter|section deals with funeral culture of the western world. The project provides an amenities version for funeral services.
Funeral ceremonies have been, up to now, traditionally associated with religion. Today we live in a world in which many people live secular lives, but our relationship to death and burial is often dominated by theistic practices. Many individuals and families opt for religious funerals out of a lack of options that would accommodate their desires and wishes. In addition to this, the Western relationship to death over the past two centuries has a tendency to 'sweep it under the rug', not simply because of the pain of loss but also because of a certain fear of death. inter|section seeks to address our society's relation to death and grieving. The imperative lies in that this is a topic that touches each of us at some point in our lives. When the issue of death falls upon us, there are very few options available via existing undertaking and funeral agencies.
inter|section comprehensives six elements, which can be used at funeral services. The product line aims to offer chapels, funeral halls and churches, which are often ragtag, makeshift equipment, a sophisticated design alternative. Funeral ceremonies are emotional events that everyone perceives subjectively. This work should influence the farewells subtly subconsciously with creative means. Through its formal language, the process of grieving will be supported. The unitary design offers the possibility to create a pleasant atmosphere, even in difficult spatial situations. Through this visually harmonious environment the grief of relatives occupies its rightful space.
inter|section gives a dignified, individualized and high-quality end to life. Anyone who wishes to curate their own funeral, or the funeral of a loved one, and to step away from the outdated and depressing image of death would benefit from this project.
