Movie theaters have modernized in many ways, from being one of the first spaces to be air conditioned to offering food and beverage service during a show. One theatre in Slovakia is upping the cozy factor—by replacing seats with cushy bean bags.
Tulikino, or "snuggling cinema," was designed by Michal Staško for the X-Bionic Sphere resort and multiplex in Šamorín, Slovakia. Aside from the big screen and stadium-style tiers, the similarities to your neighborhood theater end there. Instead of traditional seating, there are brightly colored Tuli beanbags that—unlike the wildly-varying comfort level of your average cinema seat—conform to your body, "creating ideal support while you sit or lie down."
The beanbags are grouped in pairs with partitions around them, for a little canoodling privacy, but also offering a place to stick a cupholder.
