Designed in 1969, the Up Series became one of the most resounding design symbols from the outset thanks to its expressive shapes covered in stretch fabric. An innovative proposal straddling design and art to offer to a wide public, the result of B&B Italia’s technological know-how in the use of injection polyurethane. Of the armchairs, the iconic UP5_6 stands out with its unequivocal anthropomorphic references: it is, in fact, like a large womb reminiscent of the votive statues of prehistoric goddesses of fertility. With an extra element, a sphere that acts as a footstool attached to the body of the armchair. The image of comfort overlaps with the more figurative image of a woman with a ball and chain. This is how Gaetano Pesce describes the project: “At that moment I was telling a personal story about what my concept of woman is: woman has always been, in spite of herself, a prisoner of herself. So I wanted to give this chair the shape of a woman with a ball and chain, which is also the traditional image of a prisoner.” The armchair is also available in a junior version, dedicated to children from three years of age, perfectly faithful to the original but reduced in size. Part of the series is the UP7 “foot”, an object-sculpture, an outsized archaeological fragment, in painted polyurethane.
