The Memory Stone models are available in 3 sizes of headstones and 2 urn stones. Each model is available in 3 colours: pebble white, gray and anthracite.

The Memory Stone designs are made of lightweight concrete. The lightweight concrete urns and headstones have been developed specially for Memory Stone by a group of concrete specialists.

Axel Enthoven:

"I do not know whether designing a headstone is enjoyable for a designer, but it is certainly fascinating, and when it leads to a rational solution, it is all the better. If your design ultimately turns out to be self-cleaning and maintenance friendly, simple and easy to place, and solid and stable; if it looks simple and natural; and if it fits in all environments whilst being timeless; then you have made a major step forward.

From the emotional side, it must be a wink to those you have to leave behind. Simple and pure in form as a symbol of deserved rest. Modest but present, iconic without conceit. Inspired by nature and designed with respect."
