The Bend sofa system conveys the impression of having been moulded by an artist but in fact derives from a study of 3d models and digital research. It seems that it has been shaped by subtraction then rounded and moulded by the designer.

The irregular shape and density nevertheless provide considerable flexibility in terms of use - the extensive modular range, starting with the seating, ottoman and corner elements allow a broad range of possible solutions - from linear versions in compact sizes for use in areas with limited space, to compositions that are complex and far-ranging.
