"Memento mori, carpe diem." You are mortal, seize the day. To remind you of that, Douglas Little has designed a whole dinner party setting with the skull theme: serving tray, place card holders, swizzle sticks, silver skull, skull stationery, skull porcelain plates, skull wax candle. Aside from the crossbones, what more would your dinner party need?
Implications - The popularity of macabre themes in mainstream popular culture has created a market of consumers that don't shy away from icons of death. Skulls in particular have become a common design feature as designers cater to a niche that craves individuality and prefers unusual items that make a statement.
