The Up Series was designed in 1969 and has remained an iconic design piece within the B&B Italia collection for more than 40 years. The Up5 chair, known for its striking representation of feminine strength and struggle, continues to be meaningful and relevant. It reflects a world sensibility with symbolism, irony, beauty and is truly the epitome of a timeless design.
A service element for sofas, this table with basic lines and the utmost care for details is developed in five different sizes. Through this program it is available in the rectangular low table 180 cm with bronzed reflective glass top and painted black chrome support frame.
A sheet of leather “pinched” in two places at the base: here is where the movement and natural inclination of the headboard originate. It has a comfortable and protective shape with remarkable formal simplicity and very thin sides marked by a lengthwise seam. The bed surface, which can be adjusted to two heights, has an effect of suspension and floating of the super-comfortable mattress.
Naoto Fukasawa continues his research on upside-down truncated cone shaped seats, and, for this project addresses B&B Italia’s need to explore the seating with armrests. Two forms are ergonomically designed and developed to obtain a relaxing easy armchair with a high back and headrest, and a conversation armchair with a low back. Through this program it is available the low back version.
