GAETANO PESCE: 'UP' CHAIR & OTTOMAN
Item Details
Description
Architect, designer, sculptor and performance artist Gaetano Pesce, whom generally is considered to be inline with the ‘anti-design’ school-of-thought, designed the Up Series in 1969 for B&B Italia.

His designs express political ideas that were important to him at that time. Gaetano Pesce described the ‘UP Series’ as --transformation- furniture. One could say his work is transformational both literally and figuratively.

This chair and ottoman are extremely comfortable and a great addition to any Interior.

The UP5 chair represents a female figure tied to a ball-shaped ottoman “symbolizing the shackles that keep woman subjugated.

The ottoman can be removed.

Measurements:Chair:
44 inches wide; 50 inches deep; 38 inches high

Ottoman:
Approximately 24 inches in diameter.
