Outdoor Bench #4 by Nico Yektai
The 10-foot-long bench is a sculptural expression of the structural style of Nico Yektai. Each piece of wood in the composition shifts and moves until every component has a visual as well as structural role. For example, the seat is made of three layers of Sapele that add strength and visual interest as the layers shift in and out in a visual dance. The wood back floats over the seat courtesy of stainless steel brackets. The back stops at the massive concrete legs which visually anchor the bench and served double duty as arm rests. The bench is well-suited for use indoor or outdoor, in public or private settings.
