Bench #15 is the latest in Nico Yektai’s series of handmade sculptural benches. The sweeping curves of the white cast concrete legs help establish gestural movement that is characteristic of his work. Yektai says; “I wanted this bench to capture tension similar to that of an animal being photographed mid step.” The half back of the bench adds to the composition by creating a diagonal relationship to the curved concrete leg at the other end. The wood is oxidized sapele and serves as a contrast to the bone white of the cast elements. Bench #15 has the sculptural presence and energy to be the focal point of any room that it is in.
