Patricia Urquiola came up with the name "Bend", also the English word for "curve", to underscore the particular movement of this product, the quality of which can be guaranteed only by an industrial process.
Bend-Sofa is a modular sofa that looks like it was formed by an artist, but it was really created from a study of 3D models and digital research. Patricia Urquiola imagined this piece as follows: "a seat with a primary, monolithic and almost manually moulded shape, as though it had been created from a ductile material with gestures not unlike those of a sculptor." She called it Bend-Sofa because it effectively expresses the idea of movement obtained by alternating full and empty volumes, underscored by the contrasting stitching that creates another pattern on the irregular, curved surface.
A product with a great personality that can be used to produce original and alternative seating solutions that are outside traditional canons. Freshness, colour, liveliness, composition freedom and soft lines all emerge from the communication of Bend-Sofa.
