Gaetano Pesce Up7 Piede

Gaetano Pesce Up Series
C&B Italia 

Part of the iconic Up series which Gaetano Pesco designed for C&B Italia in 1969.
A large sculpture that celebrates both the modern and the classical. the Up7 Piede or Foot is almost an archaeological relic of the modern era, expressing a fusion of art and design.

Since its first appearance, the Up series, designed by Gaetano Pesce in 1969, has been one of the most outstanding expressions of design. The exceptional visual impact of seven models of seats, in various sizes, has made them unique in time. Up5 is the collection’s most notorious creation, a female figure tied to a ball-shaped ottoman symbolizing the shackles that keep women subjugated.
