Sustainable burial has most lately been a topic on the minds of many world-wide. This concept for a modern tombstone is a well-considered compromise related to the issue of in-demand real estate for the recently deceased. You still get the beautiful gravestone, a plot of land, a place for loved ones to visit, but without taking up a whole lot of space.

Designer Sung Jang conceived this Reflected Family Mausoleum particularly for Korean culture, as a way to continue to lay families to rest together. There has been an increasing tendency to opt for cremation, which is conducive to a compact and modular arrangement with a minimized footprint in a cemetery. The modern tombstone comprises a glossy, engraved faceplate, and a system of stacked compartments for storing the ashes of each individual, in whatever number is required.
