“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.
