Bdoja Chair by Amaya Gutierrez

The Bdoja chair by Los Angeles designer Amaya Gutierrez brings to mind that cozy feeling of wrapping yourself in a chunky knit sweater, which is how I envision sitting in this chair might feel.Bdoja (which means "knot" in Zapotec, an indigenous language of southwestern Mexico), was inspired by knitting techniques and textiles from Gutierrez's hometown of Oaxaca, Mexico.

The chair is made of 100% cotton cord wrapped around a steel wire form, and hand knit by a team of Hispanic women in LA. Gutierrez's site gives a fascinating look at her entire process of designing the Bdoja, from concept to prototype.

If you have $2,800 to spare, the Bdoja is available online at Komai, a sustainable goods marketplace.
