In our lifestyles today, what kind of factors fascinate and make us want to be close to someone who passed away?
Our focus was not on expressing the sanctity of a deity but on bringing the deceased close to us. We re-examined the materials and procedures from the initial stage. We used light wood, artificial marble, acrylic, and other textures that would blend well with the interior to create a sense of intimacy.
The sense of grace and authenticity defined by its sculptural and abstract form embraces the diversified customs of prayers, preserving the practices which will endure even after a hundred years.
