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, wich is identical to the original except for being smaller in size. Designed for children aged over 3 years.discover more
