Stripe Jersey Serie Up 2000 Armchair and Ottoman by Gaetano Pesce, B&B Italia


Iconic form originally designed in 1968 - the bulbous shape, inspired by silhouettes of ancient fertility goddesses and accompanied by an affixed ottoman. Famously conceived by Pesce in the shower 'I had the sponge in my hand, when I pressed the sponge, it shrank, and when I released it, it returned to its original volume' - the original model would rise from a pvc envelope into a comfy armchair. The Up was born. Affectionately referred to as 'La Mamma', this is a timeless statement piece adored by those who appreciate radical free thinking and sensuous uncompromised design. Dimensions: Armchair: 120cm wide x 130cm deep x 103cm high; height of seat surface: 42cm Ottoman: 57cm wide x 57cm deep.
