IT ISN'T WHAT YOU THINK IT IS
OR POP ART FURNITURE
by Georgina Callan

Well, yes, it does look like a clothes pin. In fact, it is a clothes pin, but it is also one of the most intriguing
pieces of furniture you’ll see.

The Molleta was designed by Julius, Paul and Michela Baldessari of Baldessari and Baldessari, an Italian
firm of architects and designers, for Riva 1920. Carved from a solid wood piece, the bench is suitable
for outdoor or indoor use.  In keeping with the Riva 1920 philosophy, the wood is untreated and only
oil is used for maintenance.
The bench is available in two sizes, 55” long x 15” wide and 15” high, or 74.8” or
94’25” long the latter two dimensions having the same height and width of 17”.
