It took some time for the modern bean filled chair, as we know it, to come into existence. The first mass-produced Bean Bag chairs were created by three Italian designers, Gatti, Paolini, and Teodora, while working for the Zanotta Company in 1969. Called "Sacco" chairs, they were pear-shaped, and filled with Styrofoam leftover pieces. This was the first chair to actually yield to the individual's body movements. The first attempt at mass-production failed, but soon after, the "Sacco" was launched, and gained popularity worldwide. The Bean Bag chair became an icon of "Pop" culture. We are currently enjoying a huge revival of mid-century design, and the iconic bb chair is back in full force. It's an ingenious invention, and has taken its permanent place in Classic Design.
You need to take extra care when filling a bean bag chair. It is best done with someone else helping you out - otherwise you can end up with thousands of polystyrene beads rolling around the floor of your living room. The best approach is to put the bag that contains the beads inside the bean bag chair and gently open it. Then the beads need to be gently poured in. Filling bean bags needs to be done indoors - as even the vaguest hint of breeze can cause the beads to scatter everywhere. One key consideration is how full the bean bag should be stuffed with polystyrene beads. Many people have their own preference - however you should bear in mind that if a bean bag chair is understuffed it won't provide adequate support for you and may be a little uncomfortable. A fully stuffed bean bag provides very firm support. It is recommended that people with bad backs overfill their bean bag chair - as a fuller bag will provide particularly good support for your back. In general though, a good rule of thumb is to fill the bean bag to 6 inches above the widest point of the bag.
