Beanbag or Seat Cube: The Inner Values are Crucial
1968 in a small Italian village: The architects Cesare Paolini, Franco Teodoro and Piero Gatti couldn’t accustom themselves to their parents’ furnishing. It’s too old fashioned, too boring and too conservative. They want a seating furniture that looks inviting and invites you to relax. The idea of the beanbag is born. A material for the casing is found quickly. The choice of the filling material proves to be more difficult. Chestnut leaves, sand, lead balls, water, tennis balls - nothing meets the young men’s demands. Eventually, they find their solution in small polystyrene balls or beads, colloquially called styrofoam. In 1969, the Sacco con Grani, the sack with grains, already celebrates its premiere at the Paris fair. Today, many other designers in addition to Cesare Paolini & Co. deal with the comfortable, flexible chairs with the license to relax. The result: an extensive selection; from the seat cushions with EPS filling to XL textile armchairs -even beanbags for outdoors are available.

The Beanbag: From Rebels 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 a good reason! Because the 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 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. What the grown ups love, is what the little ones don’t want to miss. That’s why, in addition there are beanbags for children, too. 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 large model.
Outdoor Enjoyment for Young and Old
Beanbags are not just for couch potatoes. In recent years, the trend is towards "Outdoor Living Rooms" as long as the weather allows it. And it’s clear that the beanbag needs to be a part of it. With the Fatboy Beanbag Original Outdoor can perfectly relax outside. After a rain shower, its waterproof fabric can simply be wiped dry.
