The famous Up5_Up6 armchair, designed by Gaetano Pesce in 1969 and become a timeless icon of Italian design with its expressive shapes upholstered with elastic fabric, is one of the protagonists of the exhibition path Home Futures, currently ongoing at The Design Museum in London.
The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike and the exhibition Home Futures invites to immerse yourself in a series of dreamlike passages and rooms designed by New York-based architects SO-IL and explore yesterday’s visions of the future – as avant-garde speculations are displayed alongside contemporary objects and new commissions. More than 200 objects and experiences to trace the key social and technological aspirations that have driven change in the home.
