If it looks a bit like Gaetano Pesce’s 1969 Up 5 chair and Up 6 ottoman, that’s because it’s supposed to. If it looks a bit like a sponge, that’s on purpose, too. Designed for Ligne Roset, Yabu Pushelberg‘s Pukka armchair and ottoman pay homage to the former, which was inspired by the latter. Constructed out of ultra flexible foam and upholstered in Ligne Roset’s Gentle fabric, a 100 per cent wool stretch velvet, it’s also as comfortable as it looks. Armchair, $2615, and ottoman, $1025, at Home Société.
