Bokja Design, from Beirut, will be showing a new collection The Migration Stories, at Rossana Orlandi. The individually crafted pieces of furniture reflect stories of human movement and migration. The Migration sofa carries a heavy burden of rolled up rugs and bedding on its ‘back’ and the drawer at the base represents a suitcase of clothes. The ‘wings’ on each side are flexible and can flap in and out, like a bird. The Migration Stories Collection includes rugs, cushions and other interior products.
