UPJ for B&B Italia

S$2,565, from Space, 77 Bencoolen Street

B&B Italia's UP5 armchair is one of the most distinctive designs of the 20th century. This time around, children have their own version too. Designed by Gaetano Pesce, the UP Series, first launched in 1969 was made from air-sensitive expandable foam. When removed from its flat-pack wrapping it took 15 minutes to expand into its full shape, leaving audiences amazed. Nearly half a century later, the classic is revisited with the new UPJ, its playful form referencing a tiny blueprint of the design classic, makes it ideal for kids aged three and above, who love to explore and interpret through play.
