Bend's Geometric Trophy Heads: cool minus the kill

Bend Trophy HeadsHunting-lodge taxidermy may have outstayed its welcome as the ironic home accessory of the last few years, but at least people looking for a different animal-inspired design to hang on the wall have a new option — no rifle required.

Marina del Rey-based design firm Bend just introduced geometric wire animal heads at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York. The collection, called Geometric Trophy Heads, is made of powder-coated iron. No stuffed fur, no glazed eyes, just the animal kingdom evoked with clean and simple lines. At least they look simple. “They're actually created with bends and angles that are based on complex formulas,” Bend founder Gaurav Nanda said.

“We have taken organic shapes and created digital versions that are represented in a mathematical, engineered form.” The collection includes a water buffalo, “mama bear” and cub, and figures come in orange, white and black.

Prices range from $99 to $199 through Bend's website, though Nanda said some are already on back-order with new shipments expected in July.
