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.
The Column consists out of two parts:
A cabinet made out of Cedar wood 240 x 35 x 35 cm, which is custom made for each interior. Cabinet is made by Kevin Hughes.
The pedestal is made out of solid Carrara marble with a fixed height 45 x 35 x 35 cm. With thanks to John in de Braek van Terratorium B.V.
Column is available, it will be custom made for the interior where it will be placed in.
