Buckle up ! The Daybed that Rocks
A rattan-made daybed, gently rocking you to dream on a lazy spring afternoon, dressed in Bokja flower patterns to help Life Auction raise funds for students.
Designed by Huda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, its workmanship was entrusted to the know-how of rattan artisans, weaving their lines around and across the bed. The fabric, a Bokja forte, was fitted around the rattan frame by talented upholsterers. It is an ode to craftsmanship, which is at the heart of every design by Bokja collective.
Baroudi and Hibri’s Bokja is a collective of like-minded creatives who celebrate otherness. Named after a regional wrap the dowry of a bride, the Beirut-based studio brings together creatives and craftsmen across borders to make, provoke and delight.
This piece was commissioned to be sold at auction during the LIFE global Gala Dinner 2023 to raise funds for the LIFE Education Programme.
