Sculptural Impulse

The name may leave little to the imagination, but the beauty of the Curved Dovetail Console Table lies in the process. The intricate dovetail joinery and unpredictable curves that highlight this piece were achieved by designer Nico Yektai’s willingness to let spontaneity take over. Using only a rough 3D model for the general shape, Yektai hand-carved the joints, legs, before applying his unique clamp wood-bending process to the supporting structure, yielding a design that blurs the lines between designer and sculptor.
