Everything started with the original beanbag by Jujja Setälä. In 1988, the Finnish designer Setälä created a product that was known to be known as the beanbag of the 21st century. The success story of Fatboy began in 2002 when Alex Bergman from the Netherlands took over the rights to the design and marketing of the original beanbag.
Fatboy Original Beanbag
From the beginning,the original Fatboy beanbag was exciting, unconventional and full of vitality. This is how the cosy Fatboy beanbag got fans all around the world. For some, the Fatboy beanbag was almost a bit provocative, but for most people, the designer beanbag is simply comfortable, cosy and full of fun. That’s how Fatboy started to continuously expand its collection beyond the Original Beanbag. Nowadays, Fatboy offers not just the beanbag in all variations, but also products for young and old, for big and small, for two-legged and four-legged creatures that sweeten everyday life just a little bit.
With its friendly appearance, the Fatboy Original Beanbag has always been a kind of family member for friends of Fatboy. Every product has its own personality, unique character and different properties.
In the meanwhile, the Fatboy Original Beanbag gained many siblings. Some are very cosy (like the Headdemock hammock), others are rather robust (like the Fatboy Outdoor Beanbag) and again others are very flowery, such as the Fatboy Marimekko. Some feel comfortable inside, others outside. Some are discreet, and others stand out. As different as the family members are, ranging from the Original Beanbag to the Junior Beanbag, Headdemock hammock, Buggle-Up Outdoor Beanbag, Krukski Stool and Baboesjka Floor Cushion, Fatboy Stonewashed Beanbag and much more – together, the beanbags, cushions, cubes and lounge furniture are unbeatable.
