Life is hard. Sometimes we want to roll up into a ball and … now we have the option of escaping into the cuddly embrace of a taco.

Called the Blandito, this soft, transformable seat/pad/pillow/taco chair can fold or wrap in a variety of ways to get you all snug and cozy for a little snooze or downtime. And yes, it is indeed shaped like a tortilla, although its thickness would suggest a pupusa. The taco shape comes into play when you adjust its loops and wooden tapestry balls to create various configurations for solo chillaxing or spooning – such as a chair, bean bag or comfy rug.

The inspiration for Oradaria Design? “A fabric stockist, a do-it-yourself shop, an ironmongery, a sewing machine, a hammer, 2 sprays, a garden hose, 2 foam sheets, 20 eyelets, 8 kg of  polyester staple fiber, 4 tapestry wooden balls, 2 m of elastic cord, a lot of patience, fantasy, enthusiasm and sleepless nights.”

We were sold as soon as we heard “taco.” So were others. But rumor has it the Blandito is currently sold out.

“Blandito® comes from an idea. An idea and a few means: a fabric stockist, a do-it-yourself shop, an ironmongery, a sewing machine, a hammer, 2 sprays, a garden hose, 2 foam sheets, 20 eyelets, 8 kg of  polyester staple fiber, 4 tapestry wooden balls, 2 m of elastic cord, a lot of patience, fantasy, enthusiasm and sleepless nights. This is blandito.”

“Any time you need a break, snooze or a little bit of sweet idleness, blandito® fits your body hugging it, yet retaining its shape and nature.
blandito® contains a flexible frame, making it soft and malleable. ”

“From a chat about the traditional living room, arose the idea to completely redesign the sofa morphology. Immediately a lot of sketches, thoughts, questions: if this sofa had no legs? Neither arms, nor back? If it was a big pillow? And if this pillow could be folded, wrapped, twisted as much as you like? And if it was 360° useful? Here the result. From the concept, to the product.”
