The Center of Everything

Originally called The First Law of Thermodynamics (energy can be neither created nor destroyed), this steel and glass urn is designed to exhibit the ash remains of a loved one. Maybe it will be a hit with exhibitionists and those out to shock, but our design intent is something different - to not hide the transformation of death - to face a new reality - to feel closer to a loved one. Whatever the draw may be, this is a powerful, beautiful urn and we hope it helps create a healthy dialog about death, the body and how we process grief.

the final turn urn

“While the sphere implies perfection and eternity, the offset nature of the urn is inspired by the people left behind - the people whose lives are thrown off-kilter by the passing of their loved one. The perfect world is no longer perfect for those who remain - something is amiss.”

- Tom Kundig

The Kaleidoscope Urn

It is an unlikely partnership. A steel cube acts as a chamber to hold cremated remains, with a secure port on the underside to transfer the ash. And through the center of this vessel is a solid bronze chamber with a custom designed object chamber (the part that holds pieces of colorful and cut glass). Looking through the eyepiece, the viewer sees an infinite pattern of light and color, something truly magical, inspired and uplifting. It is a hearty functional object and art piece, designed to last centuries. And unfortunately, it’s one of those objects that you really have to witness in real life to see how amazing, and powerful this partnership is.
