The Bend system includes four seating modules of different depths and curvatures that can be combined to form various configurations.
The rounded shape of the modules gives rise to fluid, undulating forms that according to Actiu were designed to evoke “water that navigates through the terrain”.
Bend was developed by Stone Designs specifically for use in offices and workspaces to create informal seating areas for people to rest or socialise.
“Following on in the same footsteps as Actiu’s earlier soft seating ranges, Bend aims to create different and inspiring spaces where one can conduct informal meetings, have a break or make a phone call, by way of a collection that is directly inspired by the free fluidity and harmony of nature,” Actiu explained.
The modular nature of the sofa system means the seating can be easily reconfigured or adapted to different needs or users.
There are currently 18 different colour options for upholstery and a choice of either wooden or black metallic legs. Users can also accessorise the seating with backrests, charging stations, planters and desks or side tables.
