Item details

Elegant from all sides, Park is perfect for a wide range of environments including open concept spaces and lounges. The winged seat gives a sense of privacy and seclusion while being generous enough to promote multiple seating positions. The molded foam body contains an internal frame with elastic webbing so the whole chair can flex and adapt to the sitter. The marriage of innovative production techniques with considered dimensions creates a contemporary chair that is superbly comfortable and elegantly reduced. The upholstered seat sits on a simple precision-made steel base, and expertly sewn and fitted covers create a beautiful tailored appearance.

Context & Credits

Niels Bendtsen
Meet the Creator
"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. Through working with his father, Bendtsen gained valuable skills and a respect for non-industrial, hand-built traditions, but he was also intrigued by new technologies and ways to satisfy increasing demand. Between 1963 and 1972, Bendtsen had his own retail store where he sold his father's furniture, as well as imported Scandinavian designs. He designed small items for the store, but it wasn't until he was in his early thirties that he truly began designing furniture. Dissatisfied with the quality and limited functionality of the furniture he received from his overseas manufacturers, Bendtsen sold his store, moved to Europe and became a full-time designer.

Niels Bendtsen (1943) lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. He was educated at institutes in both Copenhagen (Denmark) and Vancouver (Canada). The ‘ribbon-chair’, designed by Niels, is an exhibit in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York."
