Located in the Hammond Court outside Level One, Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

These organic and nature-inspired benches and planter were created for the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha, Nebraska. They create a calming and reflective setting for patients, visitors and medical professionals. The twisting of the “wood” throughout each piece creates intriguing textures and movement; while the contorting grooves draw the eye and bring attention to smaller, hidden details in each sculpture. Patches of green moss are scattered throughout the pieces creating highlights of color in the rich and warm patinaed bronze.
