DESIGNER DOUBLE: SACCO CHAIR.

THE Saaco chair, left, was created in 1968 by Italian designers Gatti, Paolini and Teodoro and is typical of the revolutionary work that came out of Italy during the period.

The pear-shaped bag is filled with polystyrene beans which mould to fit the contours of your body.

Originals are hard to come by, although they occasionally appear in specialistic stores such as Tom Tom in London's Covent Garden or at www.mancha.co.uk.

For a wonderful new take on this design classic check out these witty dalmation print seats that you buy in a can, right. Simply carry the can home and fill with 3kg of polystyrene. Prices start at pounds 170. Call House of Plenty on 01753 832139 for stockists.
