It is generally considered that the bean bag was in fact created by Roger Dean, a 20 year old employee at a London small business - Hille Furniture - a business that was formed by a Russian emigrant in the east end of London around 1906. Roger Dean who worked along with Hille, is known as by some being the daddy of the bean bag. While his design and style for the Sea Urchin easy chair makes it possible for it to mould to the form of the body being beared, the development was of polyurethane foam sections and so quite different to the much more fluid design of the polystyrene beads inside a more contemporary bean bag. It was the Sea Urchin design which introduced him to Hille, and led to the commission to help design the interior of the newly-expanded Ronnie Scott‘s Jazz Music Club, in London.
The beanbag‘s level of popularity wasn‘t done any favours when a number of kids were hurt and even choked to death following crawling into the beanbag and breathing in the beans in the bag. In 1995, the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) in America recalled some 12,000,000 beanbags and demanded all chairs sold in the marketplace after that date to have childproof zip fasteners. A beanbag rebirth started in the latter part of 1990‘s thanks to manufacturers who started employing improved manufacturing techniques such as double stitching and better material along with aesthetic improvements which assisted in making beanbags more durable and appealing.
