Zanotta Reissues Sacco Chair With Eco-Friendly Updates
Over 50 years ago, Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini, and Franco Teodoro invented an unstructured, pear-shape chair for Zanotta. Dubbed Sacco, the purposefully low-slung form issued an anti-establishment challenge to the uptight seating norms of the day. Fast forward to 2020 and the brand rolls out a version re-engineered to address sustainability. Eco-friendly updates to the 1968 design include a bio-plastic filling derived from renewable sugar cane in place of Styrofoam and covers made of nylon reclaimed from abandoned fishing nets and other plastics. The fabric’s crosshatch pattern, conceived by French designer Pierre Charpin, takes inspiration from the netting, and comes in numbered editions of 100 for each of the red, blue, and yellow colorways.
