Fake Support Column With Hidden Storage

This ingenious fake support coloumn with hidden storage space is designed by Sophie Mense. The cabinet is made out of Cedar wood with a pedestal made out of solid Carrara marble. The pedestal can be moved around the column to access the lockers and drawers easily.

“Collecting is a condition of humanity, a fascination for a particular object or relation to an experience you cherish. 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.” – Sophie Mense.
