Located in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts commissioned artist Robin Oglesbee-Venghaus to design, build and deliver a sculptural entrance setting. She collaborated with Zahner to develop an elegant solution for her composition entitled “The Embrace.”
Zahner designed and engineered the benches which were comprised of individual elements fastened together to form a dynamic bench—forms which use painted aluminum segments to form two 27 foot long curving benches. The bench heights are exaggerated for dramatic effect and taper in counterpoint to each other. The back side of the benches are clad in a translucent Corian and are illuminated by continuous programmable 0LED fixtures.
