Are you the type who just can’t get enough of re-arranging your space and furnishings? Well, I am. I constantly move around stuff in my place so I could have different looks everytime. But there only so much you can do especially if you have limited space and most furnishings are just not that flexible.
The Bend Sofa by Patricia Urquiola might just be the answer to those flexibility concerns. Flexible, yet still manages to look aesthetically pleasant. The first time I saw it on the Contemporist blog, I immediately thought its something like a 3D model. The B&B Italia website provides this description to the Bend Sofa..
Patricia Urquiola’s has designed a surprising series of seats that transforms the tradition concept of the sofa. she has entitled the product bend sofa due to its curvaceous albeit monolithic form. It gives the appearance of being manually moulded from a supple material as if by a sculptor. In practice, it issues from a study of 3-d models and digital research. bend sofa effectively conveys the idea of motion by alternating full and empty spaces.
Contrasting seams add to the intrinsic design on the surface. the backrest is irregularly shaped, but without compromising comfort. Curved modules - assembled starting with the seats, ottoman and corner elements - form a sofa that breaks out of the usual visual schemes and differentiates from other contemporary pieces on account of its calculated eccentricity.
Bend sofa offers flexible composition solutions, including small linear versions, corner solutions or a spectacular (non necessarily domestic) version that can fill a space with double-sided seating arrangements, becoming the absolute centre of attention with its iconic presence.
It sure does looks comfy and for sure it’ll satisfy the constant itch I have to move things around..
