Did you know that the first beanbag was designed back in the 20th century?
In 1969, Italian designers Cesare Paolini, Piero Gatti and Franco Teodoro were asked to make a chair that would be aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and unique. The trio was looking for a material that would enter the body like water and provide comfort like no other.
Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini and Franco Teodoro—the design trio that embraced the ergonomic movement.
While expermenting they filled the material with foam polystyrene (a.k.a. thermocol) pellets. They understood that while you are sitting down on the necessary support for the neck and head - the bubbles move and adapt to the human body forms. This is how the first pear-shaped bean bag was created.

So it wasn’t long before this trio of designers received their first huge order in Florence. First time the bean was presented to the world in the same year - 1969 at the Paris Furniture Fair.

Historians say the first beanbags were actually created as early in 2000 BC in Egypt. The Egyptians filled the skin with dried beans or pebbles, then they were small "stuffed" leather skins that they used for games and entertainment.
