Once upon a time, the two daughters of designer, Vania Ripa and upholsterer, Antionio Scarponi met for a playdate on a gigantic bean bag. Shaped like a large giraffe, the Tantooo chair appeared as though it emerged from a fairy tale. Hugging the little girls in chemical-free fabric, the animal was the perfect place to read, relax, and snuggle.

The Tantooo giraffe from Conceptual Devices is the latest addition to Ripa and Scarponi’s menagerie. Joining their soft, 120 cm-wide elephant, the chairs are made from chemical-free, waterproof, oil proof, and sunlight resistant material. Unlike most other bean bags, the Tantooo collection feels soft like cotton, and features a double lining that makes it easy to wash.

Believing that design should incorporate ideas of society and interaction, the minds behind Tantooo have made the furniture inviting, fun, and large enough to be shared by the entire family. Warm and malleable, the elephant and giraffe are perfect for play, naptime, and relaxation. Clad in neutral colors, the creatures can match just about any bedroom decor. Both stuffed animal and piece of whimsical appointment, the Tantooo is a vehicle and partner for adventure.
