Beanbag or Seating Cube: The Insides are the Most Important
1968 in a small Italian village: The architects Cesare Paolini, Franco Teodoro and Piero Gatti couldn’t get accustomed to their parents’ furnishing. It was too old fashioned, too boring and too conservative. They wanted seating furniture that looked inviting and invited to relax. The idea of the beanbag was born. A material for the casing was found quickly. The choice for the filling material, however, proved to be more difficult. Chestnut leaves, sand, leaden balls, water, tennis balls - nothing met the young men’s demands. Eventually, they found their solution in small polystyrene balls, colloquially called styrofoam. In 1969, the Sacco con Grani, the bag with grains, celebrated its premiere at the Paris fair. Today, many other designers in addition to Cesare Paolini and co. design comfortable, flexible chairs that provide a license to relax. The result: an extensive selection, from seat cushions with EPS filling to XL textile armchairs - even beanbags for outdoors are available.

The Beanbag: From Rebel to Style Icon
In the 70s, the beanbag was especially popular with teenagers and students. The older generation couldn’t really get accustomed to them, but over the years the beanbag has become socially acceptable. For good reason! Because this piece of furniture adapts perfectly to your body, no matter what position you take. And the seat cushion relieves and supports the back and spine. The first models of the seating furniture consisted of a plastic sheet and canvas. Today, the choice of materials is much bigger. Easy-care PVC, cotton, leather, polyester and many more. And a lot has changed in terms of filling material. Many beanbags now rely on the hypo-allergenic material EPS. An example: the Checker XL from the manufacturer Sitting Bull. Young ones don’t want to miss out on what grownups love. That’s why there are also beanbags for children. They are smaller and adapt better to their bodies. With the Sacco small, the traditional manufacturer Zantotta offers a miniature version in the style of the larger model.
