Bend: Wire Seating by Gaurav Nanda

If Gaurav Nanda’s name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because you remember his sister, Gauri Nanda, creator of Clocky — the alarm clock that jumps and rolls until you get out of bed. A talent for industrial design apparently runs in the family.

Bend Seating is a contemporary take on modern wire chair production. It’s a little more angular and oblique than the classic Bertoia Chair — while Bertoia’s goal was to create a chair “mainly made of air, like sculpture,” these wire seats seem like they could have been designed by algorithm. Neon orange finishes reinforce the machine aesthetic and “pure geometry” of the form.

The Bend Seating Collection is currently available online for $400 – $450 via their webshop, where seat cushions can be also be found for an additional $50.
