Stories of success that are also stories of progress, born from tradition. The young brand The Original Sitting Bull, was born from the centenary experience of the German company Flötotto, with the intention of giving rise to a fresh brand, open to new ideas and solutions to improve in- and outdoor settings thanks to a modern aesthetic and the use of unique materials.
The Flötotto family has been dealing with the production of amazing furniture and furnishing elements for four generations. It produces magnificent objects with contemporary and innovative style and it is famous all over the world, standing out for its original and atypical products made with new materials and sophisticated engineering techniques. The conception and design of household products that are always innovative and flexible is one of the top priorities for the Flötotto family.
Thanks to a team of international designers, all very famous all in the sector, the brand is always working to stay updated on the latest market needs, answering questions such as: how will our homes become? How will we work? And what will we learn in the future? And above all, how can our company help defining our future and that of our living spaces? The key aspects on which the brand bases its research projects include concepts such as ergonomics, ecology and sustainability. The company has invested many resources in advanced production technology and product development. Here's what the brand itself thinks of its production, in the words of the CEO of Sitting Bull Frederik Flötotto: "I think that design is the daily task to find products that have a high natural aesthetic level, but are also able to link the primary function of the object to the rational use of materials, in a smart way."
Sitting Bull is an innovative brand that develops and produces beanbags and chairs with padding. Its long production experience and the self-production of EPS spheres for the padding guarantee the high quality of these made in Germany products, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Sitting Bull stands out for its smart design, through which it creates the perfect furniture for any occasion and setting.
The garden furniture and the beanbags are appreciated for their colourful design, the high level of comfort and their durability over the years thanks to the use of innovative high-quality materials. The brand is also famous for designing collections dedicated to adults but also to children, such as the Mini Bull Pouffe, the Chill-Seat Patchwork Armchair or the Bump Armchair: the kid versions of regular furniture designed by the German company. Thanks to their comfort and vivid colours, these furnishings will soon become your children's favourite seat.
The brand focuses on creating seating solutions for indoor and outdoor environments. Next to the beanbags, the company reinterpret the classic seats such as armchairs and sofas through collaborations with young designers such as Stefan Diez or Hertel & Klarhoefer, with very good results. Comfortable and flexible furniture to use on the lawn or by the pool, ideal to enjoy your outdoor areas for a moment of relaxation or for a party with family and friends.
The Couch I-II collection presents an innovative design: it includes outdoor, weather resistant furnishings, modular, with attachable elements for every need. The line was designed by Stefan Diez, a German designer living in Munich. A trendy object to sit in a perfect Chesterfield style, covered in washable polyester fabric filled with a particular material called ergofill, specfically developed by this company. This feature gives the sofa a casual look that can adapt to any style of decor.
Sitting Bull was born from the Flötotto company's ability to look forward and to be always open to new and fresh ideas to satisfy the increasingly demanding market. The line of beanbags by Bull designed by Sieger Design, is pleasantly halfway between a comfortable, huge pillow, a sofa bed and a chair, all in one: the ideal piece of furniture for a relaxing moment. The Sacco beanbag is a decorative element, and at the same time a piece of furniture that can easily fit in an environment full of style and character, thanks to its cool design, colourful and trendy. The perfect accessory to create a different atmosphere in the home or outside it.
Maximum relaxation by the pool as in the living area, thanks to the magnificent chaise longue Relaxer: a seat with a classic mood, ideal for a total relaxation guaranteed by its elongated shape that allows the whole body to relax completely. This chaise longue presents and undulating shape, simple and straightforward, and it is easy to place in the bedroom, in the living room, in the study or in the garden
