SOBU is thrilled to carry designs from Los Angeles's coolest wire furniture maker, Bend Goods. Founded by Gaurav Nanda in 2010, Bend has been twisting, bending, and shaping wire into whimsical, durable, and comfortable designs for over a decade. Gaurav, a trained visual designer and automotive sculptor, was initially inspired by the mid-century modern styles he saw during childhood summers in Palm Springs, California. A couple of years after quitting the corporate grind to pursue a career in entrepreneurial furniture design, Bend's first product, the Lucy Chair, revolutionized the wire furniture industry.
Today, Bend's designs focus on integrating distinct patterns, comfort, color, and versatility into furniture and accessories made from wire. Each Bend Goods product is shaped by hand and spot-welded, granting the ultimate control over detail and craftsmanship. Bend's 'wire' is made from sandblasted, galvanized, and powder-coated steel, insuring that each design has a long, rust-free lifespan either indoors or outdoors. The fact that each design is available in a range of super cute and customizable colors and metallics doesn't hurt.
SOBU loves Bend's playful designs and commitment to quality and durability. Break the mold in your indoor or outdoor space with Bend!
