Bend Goods is a Los Angeles based design and manufacturing company. We design functional products for the home and public spaces. We make furniture, lighting and other goods, with a commitment to being innovative and playful.
Founded in 2010 by Gaurav Nanda, a sculptor and designer from Michigan, Bend is based on Nanda’s passion for making functional yet sculptural objects. The Michigan born entrepreneur spent many childhood summers vacationing with his family in the Palm Springs California sunshine. He credits these trips for immersing him in Mid-Century Modern architecture, design and lifestyle. Those things would later influence his decision to leave his corporate job at GM, where he was a vehicle interior model sculptor and put his stamp on the era of design that had inspired him for so long.
The quality of our products is in the details: the inviting shapes, the sparks of color, the ease of assembly and the packaging. Each element embodies Bend's drive for making iconic and sustainable products.
As we evolve and continue to grow and introduce new products, we always have our minds on the future of both the company and the world as a whole. We are committed to considering issues of environmental impact and responsible manufacturing processes. Our workforce is treated with the utmost respect and our facilities minimize waste. Our products are made from iron, an inexhaustible and highly recyclable resource. We have designed packaging so it is easy to ship, thereby minimizing our carbon footprint.
For being a young company, Bend has garnered a lot of media attention. We have been lucky to be featured on HGTV and in publications like Elle Décor, Sunset Magazine, Vogue, Dwell, both the Los Angeles Times and New York Times, Design Milk, Black Book, Surface Magazine, and Architectural Digest.
