Here at The Grommet our mission is to put an end to nameless, faceless business and highlight the people and the stories behind the products we launch each day. And it's in that spirit that we're continuing this series to further share the stories of our Makers with you. Get to know them better, learn more about their journeys as Makers and entrepreneurs and learn how you, The Grommet Community, have changed their businesses for the better.
In this installment we're catching up with Eyal Levy, the Maker behind Yogibo –the new generation of bean bags. A Yogibo may resemble an old-school bean bag chair, but it definitely doesn’t feel like one. Sure, it has zillions of beads in it, like its 1970s predecessors. But the near-frictionless beads wrapped inside the zip-on Yogibo cover do a stellar job of conforming to your body’s shape.
We recently caught up with Eyal to learn more about his experiences as an entrepreneur growing a thriving business.
Tell us more about your design inspiration.
Our design is really based on fun vibrant colors, simple lines and functionality. By functionality, I mean that almost all of our products have at least one feature that’s not found in equivalent products in the market.
