Designer Mark Sturkenboom came up with the idea as a way to remember our departed loves by shoving them all up in there.


So much for "Rest in Peace." (via Mark Sturkenboom)

How many times have you looked at the urn on your mantlepiece and thought, "Ho hum?" If you're like most bereaved people, the answer is thousands. Sure, memorials like urns and wreaths are traditional, but they don't capture any of the personal spark of the person you've lost. They don't contain their scent, their essence, or their sexuality. And you can't have sex with them. But that's all about to change.

Dutch designer Mark Sturkenboom's 21 Grams project is an all-in-one kit, intended to help widows remember intimate moments with their lost husbands (although it could certainly be used by LGBT individuals as well). A gold-plated brass key you wear around your neck opens a beautiful white box, containing mementos of your loved one.
