“Bend is a poetic, fluid collection which draws direct inspiration from nature. It was born from the idea of creating movement and a distinctive character. Bend is inspired by the bends in rivers and, in the same way that these rivers move through the landscape, Bend meanders through spaces, creating different lounge areas which cater to all users”.
Bend is not intended for a closed use. It is a collection which empowers user’s freedom, providing an almost infinite scope for customisation, which users will simply and intuitively perceive.
Bend is an elastic, modular and organic ‘soft seating’ collection. The different shapes and depths of Bend seats create organic movement, which means that Bend pieces can never be taken to be linear or homogeneous in nature.
The range has been designed based on a concept of open configuration, with an unlimited scope for customisation which provides a high degree of comfort and different application options. Its simple design and pleasant aesthetic invite the user to seat.
Following the pattern established by Actiu soft seating ranges, Bend seeks to create unique and inspiring spaces for informal meetings, taking short breaks or making phone calls, all within a collection that draws inspiration from nature.
Bend is made up of four different units which can be combined and interconnected to create different structures and configurations, including a closed circle with a maximum radius of 85cm. This soft seating range facilitates the creation of comfortable, informal meeting points in a whole range of different workspaces.
Bend includes all the elements that are required to cover multiple situations: ‘satellite’ tables for placing devices on, backrests for greater comfort and small auxiliary tables which provide the necessary base for setting down mobile phones, taking notes or having a snack.
This range has been created based on a notion of simplicity and is designed to be practical and comfortable. It can be adapted to suit the social needs of both group environments and operating environments and suits any kind of public use. The option of attaching wheels to any of the Bend modules provides a greater versatility in collaborative environments and the wooden finish of the legs lends a better warmth to the office.
