A Sacco (sack) full of ideas


The most informal and versatile iconic seat ever, currently available in three models, is the ideal proposal for a gift under the sign of design.

A symbol of the Sixties, that has become an icon of Zanotta style in more than fifty years, is available in three shapes: beside the classic anatomical armchair designed by Gatti-Paolini-Teodoro in 1968, featuring a base diameter of 80cm and 68cm height, two new models Sacco Medium (68x63cm) and Sacco Small (54x59cm) were added to the collection. 
Sacco is eclectic, soft and with different functions and now is more and more a free seat, a playful pouf and a contemporary armchair. As Piero Gatti of the historical group of designers explained, who during the years of protests and experimental life-styles gave birth to it together with Zanotta: “Sacco is a project but also a collective story, beyond fashions and trends. Being so, it is fit for free and creative uses. And if nowadays Sacco becomes a “family” with the medium and small versions I am quite happy about it! It means it is always up-to-date and the market has space for this evolution. When the first pieces were launched in the Sixties I remember me and Duilio Gregorini, who had just joined Zanotta with his energy and intuitions, having much fun looking at his small children playing with Sacco. It was amazing to see how many things they did on and around that unusual coloured armchair full of expanded polystyrene pellets with high resilience. Aurelio Zanotta immediately understood its great potentials and supported its production with communication campaigns of strong and sensational impact”.
Since ever the Sacco is one of the best-seller of the company based in Nova Milanese; under many viewpoints it is a special idea for people who want to enjoy or donate a touch of comfort and colour. This is why is very popular in the shop-windows. 

Sacco has always been suitable to various and ironic interpretations. This accessory, not easy to be defined due to its versatile use, has been covered with precious materials to become limited editions for celebrating special events, or has been designed in new sizes (Medium and Small), however it has been able to cross decades without harm. A success going beyond fashions, a style so strong to allow itself changing volumes, colours and fantasies. Reaching the present days in a vigorous representation of passion and magic thanks to the new decoration fabric Tulip, characterized by sophisticated geometries, bold combinations of colours, brilliance and softness, that give the easy-chair a strong and lively personality. And then with the VIP fabric that guarantees excellent performances. A nice and good looking texture, pleasant to touch but tough as well, made resistant and precious with two special treatments: Silverguard® (certified antibacterial) and Permablock 3® (stain-proof). The PVC and polyester composition makes this fabric suitable for outdoor, as well as fire proof and easy to use. 

Sacco becomes even more timeless, suitable for everybody (adults, young people and children) because there’s no age limit for fantasy and play.
