BEAN THERE, DONE THAT

PIN Prestige (Singapore) - - DIVERSIONS -

To fete the Sacco Bean Bag Chair’s 50th year, W. Atelier

called on designers in Singapore to reinterpret the iconic seat. This culminated in the Top 10 W. Atelier Zanotta

Sacco Bean Bag Design Showcase at the home-grown furniture retailer’s Henderson showroom, which runs until the end of December. Three were chosen to exhibit in the Zanotta Showroom at Piazza XXV Aprile

in Milan in February.

PasticheE by TIFFANY LOY

“I applied my own interpretation of the Ikat technique to create a new hand-painted and woven skin for the Sacco.”

Shifu De Sacco by JARROD LIM

“The beaded car seat cover is no doubt one of the most iconic Asian inventions... I employed

the same ancient weaving techniques and wooden beads to

create a Sacco cover that provides ventilation

and possibly even acupressure massage.”

Gen Sacco by KARYN LIM

“It is common for an Asian to speak about his ancestral home, and to find many generations living under the same roof. Gen Sacco’s ability to join with another represents this practice of extending one’s family and house, and connecting circles of people.”
