    Serie Up 2000 Sofa

    Designed by: Gaetano Pesce
    Manufactured by: B&B Italia

    Year of production: 2000
    Year of drawing: 1969


    B&B Italia has an extensive amount of technological know-how (the technology of polyurethane injection moulding, for example) and it uses this information to build its company. Now, it has decided to give the creation of Mr. Pesce, the UP series, the most appropriate language to express this technology, and also to turn it into a fragment of contemporary art to offer to a vast public. 
    Designed in 1969, from the onset the Up series has been one of the most outstanding expressions of design with its expressive shapes upholstered with elastic fabric. The seven items that form it include the armchair and pouf UP5_6, icon of modernity, metaphor of the female figure that is endowed with a comfortable womb and is yet a prisoner. This unrivalled icon of design is available in a junior version, which is identical to the original except for being smaller in size. Designed for children aged over 3 years.

Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939 and educated in Venice, Gaetano Pesce has become prominent in several fields – architecture, interior design, graphics, film. He realised numerous projects in architecture, including the Hubin apartment in Paris (1986), the Organic building in Osaka (1990), the Gallery Mourmans in Knokke-le Zoute, Belgium (1994), the Schuman residence in New York (1994) or monumental glass design elements for the Palais des Beaux Arts of Lille (1996). The architect’s reputation has also been built upon exuberant experimentation in the area of industrial design and furnishings, including development of a series of now iconic chairs, like the UP series, tables and lamps.
