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."
