The Up5 chair, known for its striking representation of feminine strength and struggle, continues to be meaningful and relevant.

DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
The centerpiece of modern lifestyle, the Charles has become a hallmark in the world of design. The light feeling especially conveyed by the essential design of the “inverted “L”- shaped feet, along with a single seat-cushion and a series of free cushions placed on the backrest is the distinctive feature of a sofa that has met with boundless success. The airy shape and simple profile make it, almost by contrast, extremely rich and innovative from a spatial standpoint, a system that encourages the creation of ever new compositions. The Charles includes an extensive family of elements that can meet every furnishing requirement, even the most personal demand for comfort.
With oval round or rectangular beveling and in oversize dimensions (diameter cm 142 and cm 161,5 x 84) that can be attached vertically or horizontally to the walls; Monica Armani mirrors create a play of reflections and light in the rooms.
Now available in American King and Queen sizes, the Charles bed conserves the classic “inverted-L” shaped aluminium feet that are the distinguishing trait of the entire product family. The Charles uses a pressed and curved beechwood slatted base to provide independent support for continued comfort.
