This season Sophia invites us to Enjoy Thinking, introducing a new Metallic color range, defined by sophisticated tones with a touch of glam that adds an eclectic sense to the contemporary home decor synthesis.
Inspired by the precious history of Greece and its concept of beauty, health, endurance, strength, victory and wisdom, Sophia (Σοφία: Greek for ‘wisdom’) strikes to evoke the authenticity of the Greek cultural heritage through unique items of modern design.
Come with the quote: ‘Be as you wish to seem’ by Socrates.
Come with the quote: ‘Excellent things are rare’ by Heraclitus.
Winged Nike of Samothrace is the ancient Greek Goddess, who personifies victory and strength. Her elegant wings represent beauty, dynamism and triumph. Sophia’s statuettes is a reminder that excellent things are rare.
The victorious young athlete, combining innocence and grace is a constant reminder that success is dependent on effort, an important prerequisite that any successful man should know.
Come with the quote: ‘An honest man is always a child’ by Socrates.
The Marathon Boy is the central figure in the story that inspired the modern sporting event, Marathon race. The authentic Athens Classic Marathon is held annually in early November in Athens, Greece, as a tribute to the original course ran by Pheidippides .
Pheidippides is said to have run 40 kilometres from the battlefield near Marathon to Athens to announce the Greek victory over Persia in the Battle of Marathon, 490 BC.
Functioning both as bookends and decorative objects these Sophia Deco Heads are exclusive hand finished objects that can ornate any space on their own or be bought as pair creating this way a unique bookend.
Created by the God Zeus himself as the most beautiful creature in the world, the Horse was adored by the ancient Greeks who gave it immortal status in a myriad of myths. This magnificent animal is just as beloved now, as a symbol of power, freedom and nobility.
This is a brand new addition to Sophia ‘s Cycladic range celebrating Cycladic Art through minimal lines and rich textures. Cycladic art, with its anthropocentric character – reflected in the perfection of its proportions and form, the simplicity of the structure and the austerity of the material – is thought to have strongly influenced sculpture of the early 20th century.
Come with the quote: ‘Thinking is the making of the soul with itself’ by Plato.
Sophia is inspired by the ancient Cycladic sculptures and is celebrating Cycladic Art with Cycladic Bookend and Statuettes, handmade of Ceramine; a mixture of earthy and marble powders, which imitates the ancient Greek recipe. It is a non-toxic and environmentally friendly material.
