A view from the Present 1-13



A series of thirteen concrete benches by the Norwegian artist Magnus Pettersen and the Danish furniture designer Lea Hein. Pigments in orange, torquoise, blue and purple have been used to add colour to the raw concrete. Time and the salt air and use will effect the surface and weather the rounded shapes. Set between the trees of the installation by Yoko Ono. the benches are well used and people sit here talking about the Wish Trees or wait for friends they are meeting before going on to the food halls on the island or simply sit and look out over the harbour.
