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‘.
The reclining chair was made up of a dozen pieces of polyurethane foam and was protected by different types of fur. Despite the fact that the bag was circular it would would mould by itself to the curves associated with the sitter, who could then nore easily obtain a comfortable seating position of different angles. Some debate that the Sea Urchin is very little more than an altered futon mattress, not really that it makes much difference because the Sea Urchin is typically credited as being the precursor to the ‘Sacco‘ which is what most people realize these days as the modern beanbag.
