Bensen is a design and manufacturing group founded in 1981 by Niels Bendtsen. Along with his team, Niels designs and oversees production of an extensive line of furnishings.

Born in Denmark, Niels Bendtsen and his family immigrated to Canada in 1951. In place of a formal design education, he trained as an apprentice for his father, who designed and built Scandinavian furniture.


The Bensen site reflects the simple sophistication of their products, including imagery, technical details and drawings for the entire line of furnishings.

“Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude to design.”

—Niels Bendtsen
