Founded in 2010, Bend is a Los Angeles design and manufacturing company that designs functional products for the home and public spaces. They make furniture, lighting and other goods, with a commitment to being innovative and playful. At Bend, they look at how things are made and figure out how to make them better. The quality of their products is in the details; the inviting shapes, the sparks of color, the ease of assembly, even the packaging. Each element embodies Bend's drive for making unique products.
Bend furniture is comprised of intricate patterns of wire formed through a method of shaping by hand and spot welding, a process they refer to as 'bending.' Each bend is carefully made to achieve the utmost structural strength, while the angles of the back, the curvature of the seat and the distance between the wires are designed to promote comfort and utility.
