Is it a sofa or is it a bench? Full of color and fanciful personality, Alessandra Baldereschi’s Poppins plays on the traditional throw pillow to offer a hybrid design that will make you look twice before you take a seat.
Working with the illusory potential of color contrasts and geometric shapes, the Italian designer has created the impression of throw pillows laying on a bench or sofa. Inspired by the 3D illusions of sixties Op Art, Poppins is crafted from lacquered wood and features upholstered padding in groups of distinct colors and shapes. While it might look as though the padding is added on top of the bench’s surface, it is in fact sewn into the wood and protrudes from the flat surface. These cushioned additions add comfort and a pop of patterned color that brings some lighthearted graphic fun to any living room.
