Fetiche Design's R540 Rocking Bench was designed by Carolina Armellini and Paulo Biacchi with the woven garden seats of their childhoods in Brazil in mind.

The woven threads in the Fetiche Design R540 Rocking Bench allow for an ergonomic design that looks good and feels even better. I'm particularly fond of the emotional ties the chair has to the designers' childhoods. Check out some more innovative benches below.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been a passionate consumer fervor for products that are reminiscent of products in the 80s, 70s and 60s. One of the best ways a company can capitalize on this movement is by combining 21st Century technology with vintage designs. By attaching technological developments with retro designs, the company offers consumers the best of both worlds.
