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.
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.
