Desk #2 by Nico Yektai is a maple desk that uses unique, asymmetrical curves to draw the viewer’s attention across its dynamic surface. The asymmetric, curving shape and wood tones of this piece serve as the perfect organic complement to a space.
“This exploration of Desk #2 revolves around the dynamic energy of the steam bent maple curves,” said the designer on his website. “Their sweep is only interrupted by the occasional leg that pushes up above the desk’s surface. This moment is repeated once at the far corner of the desk as a means of pulling the viewer across the piece.”
The designer uses the shape as a means of directing the viewer’s attention, both across the space and within the piece itself. A notch in the desk’s surface draws attention to the point where the desk’s three drawers meet. Each of these drawers opens in a slightly different direction.
With its striking design and organic finish, this desk is sure to be a conversation piece when included in any space.
Desk #2 is part of a numbered series of modern benches by Nico Yektai.
“Each bench is a unique expression of handmade modern furniture- a work of art in its own right,” said the designer.
Operating out of a studio in Sag Harbor, N.Y., Nico Yektai has made unique wooden furniture since 1995.
