This autumn, B&B Italia releases the latest interpretation of the Up series, UP Junior – a pint-sized version of the previous season’s UP5_6 – designed specifically for children. This cheerful, cherry red armchair is comfortable and durable, perfect for a rough afternoon of play.
The Up series, initially launched in 1969, was designed by Italian architect and designer Gaetano Pesce. Inspired by the pop art of the 1960s, this modern chair was designed to be a metaphor for the condition of women. The chair is shaped to model the figure of a woman and the attached ottoman represents the ball and chain that society uses to oppress her.
