Although a beautiful vase has provided a great vessel to hold the ashes of a departed loved one for years, Mark Sturkenboom has created a unique alternative that is even more intimate. The Dutch designer envisioned a hollow glass sex toy that provides people with an outlet for their grief. Dubbed '21 Grams,' it comes in a beautiful wood box that is also capable of amplifying music from an iPhone.
Complete with a diffuser and small gold-plated urn, Mark Sturkenboom's creation addresses the idea of a lost one still wanting to provide comfort in a specific way. Mark Sturkenboom says, "By bringing different nostalgic moments together like the scent of his perfume, 'their' music, reviving the moment he gave her her first ring, it opens a window to go back to moments of love and intimacy."
