With Loop, creative founder Gaurav Nanda pays tribute to Swiss designer Willy Guhl’s 1954 concrete seating, reimagining the iconic curve in Bend Goods’ signature wire. With a side profile that seemingly defies gravity, the lounger’s unique organic shape and relaxed reclining angle makes it as striking as it is comfy when stretching out at poolside or on the patio. In essential black or white powder coat, it’s treated with Bend’s proprietary galvanizing process applied before the final finish for outdoor durability and longevity.

Around the Bend is a bright and happy place to be when speaking of the cool iron wire furniture from Los Angeles' own Bend Goods. In true Southern Cali style, these corrosion-resistant pieces with their pop of powder-coat color can easily meander from indoors to outside. Sculptor, designer and entrepreneur Gaurav Nanda perfected the signature process he calls "bending"—shaping and spot welding the wire by hand—to achieve intricate patterns in Bend's furniture, lighting and accessories.
Michigan native Gaurav, formerly a designer for General Motors, values performance just as much as polish. The structural strength of each piece of furniture is contract grade, while the ergonomics and the spacing of the wires assure comfort and utility. Environmental impact is also a concern, and he envisions each piece as something built to last a lifetime, fabricated from the plentiful resource iron and sustainable woods. Though Gaurav's work draws on the legacy of modernist objects in wire, he wants "to offer something different, something edgier."
