DESCRIPTION

Even animal lovers won't growl as the Polar Bear Trophy Head joins the Bend Goods lineup. Designer Gaurav Nanda's graphic representation in steel wire starts with just a mathematical pursuit of big game. "The shapes may look simple," he notes, "but in actuality they are created with bends and angles that are complex formulas." A machine-molded frame undergoes countless handmade spot-welds in a process Gaurav refers to as “bending." Fabricated in his L.A,. studio, the pieces are then sandblasted, primed to withstand rust, and powder coated.

ABOUT THE BRAND: BEND GOODS

BEND GOODS

Around the Bend is a bright and happy place to be when speaking of the cool iron wire furniture from Los Angeles' own Bend Goods. In true Southern Cali style, these corrosion-resistant pieces with their pop of powder-coat color can easily meander from indoors to outside. Sculptor, designer and entrepreneur Gaurav Nanda perfected the signature process he calls "bending"—shaping and spot welding the wire by hand—to achieve intricate patterns in Bend's furniture, lighting and accessories.

Michigan native Gaurav, formerly a designer for General Motors, values performance just as much as polish. The structural strength of each piece of furniture is contract grade, while the ergonomics and the spacing of the wires assure comfort and utility. Environmental impact is also a concern, and he envisions each piece as something built to last a lifetime, fabricated from the plentiful resource iron and sustainable woods. Though Gaurav's work draws on the legacy of modernist objects in wire, he wants "to offer something different, something edgier."
