Throughout the 70s the Sacco was widely advertised but not as the Sacco. Marketers needed a name for an imitation of the Sacco so they developed a more appropriate name - the beanbag. The main difference between the Sacco and the ‘beanbag‘ was that the beanbag used less expensive materials to help make it cheaper for the common man. The beanbag would go on to become a symbol of the 70‘s along with the disco ball, lava lamps, Space invaders, Pong and even Abba. Throughout the 1980‘s the beanbag suddenly lost most of its trendy reputation and for that reason was consigned to the world of "kiddie furniture". The beanbag became the kid‘s preference of a seat for watching television and just ‘chilling out‘.
It is rumoured that the Socco was essentially an accidental development that originated in a Styrofoam production line where they decided to put all the excess pieces from the manufacturing line into a carrier. In either case the Sacco grew to become the first modern beanbag. In the 70s the Sacco started to be extremely well-liked and brought the couple of creators overnight acclaim. The chair is much like a present day day beanbag. Even so, unlike the standard bean bag the Sacco was pear shaped and was fabricated from high-quality leather, and had a head rest part formed by moving pellets. It oozed style, class, luxury as a consequence ended up being a much sought after high-end item.
It‘s not until 1969 that the beanbag as we understand it emerged into existence. Italian stylistes Gatti, Paolini, and Teodora were doing work for the Zanotta Company and were striving to develop the ideal type of easy chair to market to 1960‘s hipsters and hippies. The easy chair would have to be trendy, useful, and in-tune with the 60‘s life-style. With the brief understood they began designing this seat and what they ultimately delivered has been referred to as Sacco or the Socco as it became known overseas. It was the Sacco which was the first contemporary bean bag - a pear shaped leather-based bag filled with thermocole pellets that have been latterly substituted for shredded polyurethane foam beads or expanded polystyrene or PVC pellets.
With the all of the tiny beans in the beanbag, they provided unparalleled support. They practically act as memory foam, form to the body of the person sitting in it. You also get the added benefit of a more relaxed seating position. With a beanbag, you are reclined, taking weight and pressure off you of your lower back. Beanbags come in all shapes and sizes. They are truly perfect for whatever your needs. Whether you want a small chair for your child‘s room or a large sofa chair for your living room; you can find it with beanbags. When it comes to affordability, beanbags leave any other type of furniture behind. The PVC beans are very cheap to produce and the beanbag itself is a very simple design. This allows manufacturers to cut cost and the savings are passed on to you. You can find even the largest beanbag sofas for far cheaper then you would find a couch of the same size.
