Gaetano Pesce UP Chair

Out of stock

Description

Don’t miss this opportunity to own mind-blowing UP 2000 chair and ottoman. We just had this special edition striped fabric professionally steam cleaned and they’re looking great. The material is in very good original condition and has only a few age appropriate imperfections. The configuration of this B&B Italia Gaetano Pesce UP 2000 armchair has anatomical characteristics and unmistakable anthropomorphous references. The chair is a metaphor of a large comfortable womb and recalls ancient statues of fertility goddesses. However, it has something extra: a spherical ottoman tied to the armchair. Therefore, the image of comfort and convenience is combined with a more figurative image of a woman with a ball and chain on her foot. Gaetano Pesce explains the project as follows: “At that time, I was telling a personal story about my concept of women: I believe that women have always been unwilling prisoners of themselves. This is why I decided to give this armchair the shape of a woman with a ball and chain, a traditional image of a prisoner.” Over the years, the B&B Italia UP5_6 armchair has become an international icon with different names, from “Big Mama” to “Blow Up”. It is still a very popular item.
