Bend Goods is a Los Angeles based design and manufacturing company that design functional products for the home and public spaces.
They 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.
