Kids armchair with footstool
B&B Italia has an extensive amount of technological know-how (the technology of polyurethane injection moulding, for example) and it uses this information to build its company. Now, it has decided to give the creation of Mr. Pesce, the UP series, the most appropriate language to express this technology, and also to turn it into a fragment of contemporary art to offer to a vast public. In 1969, a series of sofas and armchairs called “Serie UP” came out, a total of seven pieces. They were ahead of the times for the project that generated them, and also for the technical procedures used to make them.
Designed in 1969, from the onset the Up series has been one of the most outstanding expressions of design with its expressive shapes upholstered with elastic fabric. The seven items that form it include the armchair and pouf UP5-UP6, icon of modernity, metaphor of the female figure that is endowed with a comfortable womb and is yet a prisoner. And again, the “foot” UP7, bject-sculpture, out of scale archaeological fragment, redesigned with modern technology.
UP5_6, an unrivalled icon of Italian design on the international stage, now presented in an unusual version designed for children aged over 3 years: UPJ. The new Junior version, which is identical to the original except for being smaller in size, is proposed as a design armchair both comfortable and playful; its attractive shape and its bright red colour will tastefully furnish and enhance spaces dedicated to children and even compact metropolitan apartments. UPJ, the latest “must” for all those who will not give up a seat - even a small one - that has a place in design history.
