Two talented Lebanese designers Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri aimed to blur the line between art, craft, and design. Using furniture designs from the 50s, 60s and 70s, unearthed in Beirut’s flea-markets and antique dealerships, they cover them with exuberant tapestries and textiles from the Levant and the legendary Silk Road countries of Central Asia. Combining ancient culture with modern design, Bokja is creating one-of-a-kind pieces that offer an explosion of color, pattern and a richly textured sense of history.

The designers of BOKJA see the potential for upholstery in any material. Alongside their team of local artisans, they’ve applied their unique vision and deft craftsmanship skills to unusual objects such as a life-size Beetle they called the “Bokja Bug” exhibited at Rossana Orlandi during Salone 2010 and favored by press and design pilgrims. Spazio Rossana Orlandi was voted as one of the top 10 things to see at Salone 2010 by WGSN, the world-renowned trend analysis and forecasting agency.
