Bend is a series of upholstered foam elements that bend, twist and drape over one another to create a reconfigurable seating environment. Inhabiting a world between collapse and animation, the elongated cylindrical forms create a shifting landscape for play and relaxation.

Presented here as a site-specific outdoor installation for the entrance courtyard of Design Miami/ 2012, Bend plays off of the inflatable tubes of Snarkitecture’s Drift pavilion. The varied configurations of Bend offer Design Miami visitors a space to relax, socialize and enjoy the view. The installation of Bend at Design Miami/ was made possible by Sunbrella.
