Beautiful galvanised iron chairs and an alternative taxidermy idea for vegetarians here at furniture and product design house, Bend.
Bend was founded by Gaurav Nanda, a designer and entrepreneur. Gaurav always loved to create. As a kid growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, Gaurav would find himself building something, joining something, or bending something, whether it be constructing a teepee, painting with oils, or throwing pots. Once he made a screen printing machine, where he built a frame, stencil, and got a squeegee to pass paint thru. It was to mark the beginning of his t-shirt printing business. Needless to say, he gave it up for bigger and better things. Today Gaurav is doing the same thing. He is creating.
Gaurav spent much of his corporate life designing cars, and later was a part of the design and conception of Clocky, the alarm clock that runs away beeping. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
