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. 

Furnish Plus produces this icon upholstered with soft Danish Cashmere in a selection of colors.

Gaetano Pesce

During his career, which spans four decades with commissions in architecture, urban planning, interior, exhibition, and industrial design, Gaetano Pesce, the architect, and designer, has conceived public and private projects in the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.In all his work, he expresses his guiding principle: that modernism is less a style than a method for interpreting the present and hinting at the future in which individuality is preserved and celebrated.Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939, Pesce studied Architecture at the University of Venice between 1958 to 1963 and was a participant in Gruppo N, an early collective concerned with programmed art patterned after the Bauhaus.He taught architecture at the Institut d’Architecture et d’Etudes Urbaines in Strasbourg, France, for 28 years, at the Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, at the Domus Academy in Milan, at the Polytechnic of Hong Kong, at the Architectural School of Sao Paulo, and at the Cooper Union in New York City, where he has made his home since 1980, after living in Venice, London, Helsinki, and Paris.Pesce’s work is featured in over 30 permanent collections of the most important museums in the world, such as MoMa of New York and San Francisco, Metropolitan Museum in New York, Vitra Museum in Germany, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Pompidou Center, and Musee des Arts Décoratifs of Louvre in Paris; he exhibits art in galleries worldwide.
