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.
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.
