File this under “genius on so many levels”. B&B Italia has created a kid’s version of the iconic Up Series “Ball And Chain” chair, called UPJ (the “J” is for Junior). The original was designed by Gaetano Pesce, who said of it:
I told a personal story of my concept of women. Despite themselves, women have always been prisoners of the prejudice and fears of men. Along these lines, I liked the idea of giving this armchair a feminine shape with a ball and chain, the traditional image of the prisoner.
Exactly. Now for kids! Xo.Alec Holland Design, B & B Italia, Ball and Chain Chair, Beauty Because, Gaetano Pesce, UPJ Chair
