The large Bean Bag chair by Zanotta is the perfect mix between comfort, genius, and design. Zanotta's large Bean Bag chair is one of the most original among Italian design icons. Designed at the end of 1968 by the Turinese designers Franco Teodoro, Cesare Paolini, and Piero Gatti, the Bean Bag chair is a cult, a product that creates new ideas and new ways to think of furniture. The inspiration is twofold: on the one hand, the armchair recalls the 1960s ashtray, which contained small balls inside its base, while on the other this piece recalls the bags full of leaves used by peasants to sleep on. Light and absolutely modern despite it being nearly fifty years old, this chair by Zanotta is a perfect seat. Soft and universal, it fits perfectly to any body shape to give unmatched comfort. Its structure is made of a casing containing extremely high-resistance polystyrene balls while the coating is non-removable and made in VIP fabric. The VIP fabric is also suitable for outdoors and is fire resistant, anti-bacterial thanks to the Silverguard treatment, and stain-resistant thanks to the Permablock 3 treatment. A real bag, this piece is one that even in the golden age of Pop Art changes the concept of seats and sitting, becoming the symbol of a generation that thinks outside the box. The Bean Bag chair is a metaphor, a desire for freedom, a shape that is not forced, an emancipation from classic canons, a piece that overturns the way we think of living rooms. This environment in fact stops being a room to receive guests and turns into a space dedicated to freedom, joy, and sharing. This seat has been awarded some of the most prestigious prizes such as the Compasso d'Oro Selection in 1970 and the BIO of Ljubljana in 1973; it is also a piece of furniture that has become an object of artistic value, displayed in numerous permanent collections and in most important museums such as the MoMa in New York, the Triennale in Milan, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Bordeaux Decorative Arts Museum, and the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris. It is also suitable for outdoor use.
