Poppins: Op Art Bench from Alessandra Baldereschi
View Slideshow

Inspired by Op Art’s use of color and geometric shapes, Alessandra Baldereschi Design Studio created Poppins – a bench with some mighty colorful personality. The bench gives the illusion of patterned pillows laying there when, in fact, the fabric pushes through the wood giving it a three-dimensional effect.

The padded areas provide comfort while sitting but also give it the geometric shapes needed to give the look of a pillow.
