Gaetano Pesce Up 50 Chair & Ottoman:
The spheric and shapely UP50 chair was designed by Gaetano Pesce in 1969 are undoubtedly feminine. The concept for the Up chair came to him when he had a wet sponge in his hand. “When I pressed the sponge, it shrank, and when I released it, it returned to its original volume,” said Pesce. The image has inspired him to create the Up chair which now resides in many museums around the globe, namely MoMA.
Fifty years ago when it was launched, the chair was considered revolutionary due to the use of polyurethane – a newly discovered component. The Up 5 chair is attached to the bulbous Up 6 ottoman by an elastic cord.
