Ethel Chair

Designed by Gaurav Nanda for Bend Goods

Ethel is just as lovable as Lucy. At least that's so when it comes to the duo by Gaurav Nanda. The Ethel and Lucy dining chairs are part of the Bend collection by the Los Angeles-based Gaurav, who's managed to make wire chairs that are actually comfortable to sit in for a long while. Each piece is machine-molded and undergoes upwards of 400 handmade spot-welds—a process Gaurav refers to as "bending." Each bend is carefully arranged to ensure structural strength. The angles of the back, the curves of the seat and the closeness of the wires are placed a quarter inch apart for comfort and utility. Gaurav grew up in the Detroit suburbs and even spent part of his design career at General Motors. For this collection, he draws pattern inspiration from his childhood: the intricate macramé his mother made; string art Spirograph drawing sets. (He was also a part of the design and conception of Clocky with his sister Gauri.) What's more, the collection is made of an iron that can be repeatedly recycled, and all pieces are sandblasted, then pre-treated with anti-rust zinc primer and powder coated for extended life right in Gaurav's L.A. studio.
