Cerac Bench by Zaha Hadid for lab 23.

Seen in a group, the Cerac Bench designed by Zaha Hadid, evokes the notion of a pod of whales swimming in an urban ocean.

Described as a piece of urban sculpture for seating and resting, the bench is sure to grace the streets and public places of towns and cities seeking that touch of class to elevate the public realm.

Made of hard-wearing resin quartz, a material which when moulded gives truth to the line of the curves, the bench looks graceful. The body of the material also has a sparkle from the quartz that can capture a glint of light. The sparkle works with the crisp shadows resulting from its stepped curvilinear form.

It is a beautiful example of how form and material can work harmoniously.
