CASSON is thrilled to announce
the inaugural collection from their in-house line CSSN.
Bende is a line of refined bathware accessories,
which coaxes wide curves from a single sheet of metal.
The latin maxim "multum in parvo,'' or "much in little," is CASSON's guiding concept. A belief that details make a space, and that the smallest and simplest ideas can carry the greatest weight. BENDE was created with this in mind, forged from one of the most basic materials, sheet metal, which is then transformed into simple, elegant, and playful bathware.
The line moves away from a restrained minimalism towards something more gestural.
“These are playful proportions that you don’t see in the bathroom all the time,” says CASSON co-founder Megan Cassidy. “The pieces are robust, to create a strong visual presence without an overpowering weight.
"It was important to us that the entire Bende collection worked, both functionally and aesthetically."
The CASSON team made the decision to fabricate and design the pieces locally, meaning they could go through multiple prototypes as they figured out the best way to coax the simple shapes out of the solid metal sheets."
Cassidy explains, "It was important to us that the entire BENDE collection worked, both functionally and aesthetically."
"Designing the collection was an exercise in restraint and creativity. We knew exactly what we were going for - something playful, yet refined," says CASSON co-founder Jane Son.
The metal finishes of BENDE reflects and bends light, emphasizing the unique form. The result is timeless bathware that teases a tension between playful and modern design.
Designed to work together or separately, BENDE is seven piece collection available in six finishes. Quality materials are utilized to create graceful and playful curves to add style to any bath space.
Made from a circle of sheet metal, the Bende shelf creates a visual presence without adding visual weight. Perfect to display your treasured items or as a place to rest daily items.
