With his new product for Abstracta, the price awarded Swedish designer Thomas Bernstrand explores the potential of an essential element of architecture to add new value and function to a space: the pillar.Since antiquity, the pillar has been used as support for buildings but also as ornament and monument. Thomas Bernstrand’s version of the pillar makes a playful reference to the latter use: It is possible to put a plant on top of it. But in all other respects, his pillar is different from the pillars and columns we are used to. DB PILLAR This innovative pillar is 1930 mm tall and is available in three models with magazine rack, clothes hooks, or a whiteboard. All models have a flowerpot on top. The 700mm tall pillar is available with a flowerpot or waste paper basket. The 1100mm tall pillar has a flowerpot on top. Fabric must be selected for all pillars (2/3 of pillars with whiteboard are made up of fabric).
