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.
