This 'Atlas' bench by Giorgio Biscaro looks like a fun beheaded stick figure. Painted in playful primary colors, this piece of sculptural seating was designed for Slide Design and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Implications - The only true risk that businesses can take with innovation is avoiding it altogether, and benches like these are great examples of how embracing adventurously quirky designs can pay dividends. Consumers may have seen a million regular benches (or any generic product) before, but if you embrace an out-of-the-ordinary approach suddenly your product stands out from the crowd. That is the key to products like this and why people talk about them.
