Column by Sophie Mensen
by Harry / November 18, 2010

Sophie Mensen has created a subtle yet prominent piece of interior furniture for collectors and their collections.

Says Mensen, "Collecting is a condition of humanity, a fascination for a particular object or relation to an experience you cherish."


Column is a column shaped cabinet that hangs from the ceiling and that has multiple compartments, openings on two sides and a solid Carrara marble pedestal underneath.


"I have the compulsion to give these objects their own particular orientation within my personal space, a subtle yet prominent position. I have chosen to work with a shape that gets absorbed by the space; the column, a constructive element of the house."


"A column is also a monument to impress, to remember important events that may not be forgotten. The column as a monument and the column as a constructive element are like the equivalent of my Column, but in the size and scale that fits to our interior."


"With my Column I propose the question is it a component of architecture or is it interior furniture."
