The RIVA 1920 Moletta Bench perfectly achieves the idea of fun furniture. The bench was designed by architects and designers Michela and Paolo Baldessari from the Baldessari e Baldessari firm, created for the Italian furniture company RIVA 1920. As the company's website states, it tries to work on projects that produce, “furniture defying time and respecting the environment.” They look to create timeless statement pieces and successfully accomplish this goal with the Moletta bench.

The bench is masterfully carved out of cedar and works as both a piece of furniture and an incredible work of art. Surprisingly, the giant clothing pins are an aesthetically pleasing and playful perch that would work great as both indoor or outdoor seating.
