About

Originally designed in 1969 for a few years before it was discontinued, the UP5_6 lounge chair and ottoman by Gaetano Pesce, also known as the Big Mama, Blow Up and Donna chair, was reissued in 2000 by B&B Italia. One of the most outstanding designs of the 20th century, and certainly one of the most iconic, the expressive shapes upholstered with elastic fabric and polyurethane foam forms the Silhouette of the female form with the UP6 ottoman, which attaches to the lounge chair with a Nylon cord, is, by the designers own words, representative of a ball and chain, and B&B Italia's comments to this as the female figure that is endowed with a comfortable womb and is yet a prisoner. Due to its large size, combine with the ottoman this can also function similar to a chaise lounge, armchair or club chair. This lounge armchairand ottoman are a perfect pairing with Mid-Century Modern, Post-Modern and Contemporary homes or offices. Also consider a splash of juxtaposition with this set in a Traditional, Classical, Art Deco, Mediterranean, Spanish or Craftsman styled home or creative studio.

Fading from UV light (sun) to one side, however looks quite nice - almost looks intentional. Provides a casualness to the chair.
