With the project Bend, family of chairs designed by German duo Jehs+Laub (Markus and Jurgen), MDF Italia has been awarded for the second year in a row with the Interior Innovation Award 2012, one of the most prestigious prizes in the sector of furnishings and fine design.
Established in 2002 by Imm Cologne and organized with the “Rat fur Formgebun/German Design Council”, the award is given every year to products made by exhibiting companies that have distinguished themselves for their innovative design.
The Bend family of chairs features a very stately, sturdy, elegant frame with a strong hi-tech undertone and a simple, tasteful look.
A chair with highly versatile applications, Bend lends itself not only to the domestic environment - the living room, kitchen, study corner - but also to work settings such as managerial offices and meeting rooms, and even to public areas in restaurants, cafeterias, receiving rooms and waiting rooms.
Depending on the type of chair employed, Bend can take on a different character and appearance to meet the many demands of the market and offer a wide range of uses.
The frame, characterized by a trapezoidal section, is entirely made of aluminium through die-casting and extrusion. Available also with arms. Matt lacquered in white, black, light grey and anthracite grey, or chrome-plated.
- wooden shell in curved wood, lacquered in bleached or wenge-stained oak.
- 3D-upholstered shell: an inner countershell in curved wood with polyurethane padding, upholstered in the fabric options Manila, Londra and Cambridge, and characterized by a peculiar three-dimensional pattern.
- stretched upholstered shell: an inner countershell in curved wood with polyurethane padding. The shell is upholstered in the fabric options Manila, Cambridge, Liverpool, Londra, or in leather.
