The Pontus console table and The Cito accent table are pedestal tables are the latest pieces from New York designer/maker Nico Yektai. Both pieces are designed with the same vocabulary of curved walnut, concrete, dyed ash and glass. Cito is built directly over the base while Pontus cantilevers off of the castings mass for dynamic asymmetrical presence. Both pieces offer space so that the designer/maker, Nico Yektai, can make them slightly different each time.

The final element in both pieces is the dyed ash mass that is nestled between the cast concrete and the walnut verticals. The splash of color and the accentuated texture of the grain become a focal point.
