Patricia Urquiola has designed a surprising series of seats that transform the traditional concept of the sofa. She has named 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’s made from a study of 3D models and digital research. Bend-sofa effectively conveys the idea of motion by alternating full and empty spaces. Contrasting stitching adds 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.
