Maria Tyakina designs cremation urns to suit the contemporary home

Dutch designer Maria Tyakina has reimagined the traditional cremation urn as a futuristic domed vessel, in a bid to better suit the modern-day home.

The Dome urn is composed of three parts. The hollow inner vessel, made from white Bianco Carrara marble, is used to contain the ashes. This is covered with a flat lid and contained within a frosted glass dome, which has been hand-painted with a deep blue ombre pattern.
