Serie UP 2000 Chair UP5 and UP6 BNB Italia

Designed in 1969 by Gaetano Pesce for BNB Italia.
Icon of modernity, Up5 armchair is characterized by an extraordinary visual impact that has made it unique. Combined with Up6 ottoman, it represents a female figure tied to a ball-shaped ottoman symbolizing the shackles that keep women subjugated.
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.

The curved lines and volumes link interior design to the spirit of pop art.Over the years, the UP5 and 6 armchair has become an international icon with different names, from Big Mama to Blow Up.
