“Capsule’s line of contemporary urns and keepsakes stand apart in the crowded landscape of ordinary cremation products,” says design director, Steve Prastka. “Our American-made products offer a comprehensive customisation program with a wide variety of personalisation options.”

Crafted by Capsule’s team of award-winning, highly experienced industrial designers, the beautifully crafted urns and keepsakes are made with aluminium and American-made glass with a variety of glossy and powder-coated finishes, such as jet black, chrome, bourdeaux and burgundy. Capsule uses state-of-the-art CNC-machine tools to produce precision and lasting products.

“We design and manufacture memorials for discerning customers and our products resonate with a growing class of customer that appreciates modern design and quality materials,” says Prastka.

The collection comprises 10 designer products. The miniature keepsake vessels range in price from US$90 to $200 and come in cylinders and cubes, such as the 1.8 x 1.8 cm Small Cube Keepsake Urn.

The full-sized urns are US$1300 to $1800, such as the C-5050 urn, a pure cube-shaped urn (approximately 17 x 17 cm). The pet urn is US$375 and would undoubtedly make a chic ornamental reminder of your much-loved companion on the mantelpiece.

Based in Vancouver, Washington, Capsule touts its products as eco-friendly, which is a creed we’re all increasingly trying to live by – and is now one, it seems, that we can also embrace in the afterlife.
Capsule products are available for purchase from the online store and they can be shipped worldwide.

When Tokujin Yoshioka has an idea, he has no clue where it will lead him in terms of form. Previously an enfant prodige of Japanese design, now a worldwide star working for companies and galleries all over the world, Yoshioka’s shapes, textures and finishes are ‘accidents’ in the philosophical meaning of the word: necessary physical manifestations of an idea and consequences of a higher concept.
