Design Niels Bendtsen
Casters, wood, glass top
Made in British Columbia by Bensen

U Be and U Trek are reformulations of the Bensen U Table. The veneered frame holds the glass top in a finely machined channel creating 2 levels of storage. Steel button glides raise the U Be from floor, protecting wood from damage and creating a subtle shadow line below table allowing it to hover visually off the floor.The U Be side table, with a size which allows it to fit in any room, is especially useful when paired beside a sofa or bed.

The finish is made up of select solid wood and veneers that are carefully matched, sliced and stitched together for harmonious pattern and consistent coloration. A clear lacquer coat protects the veneer from daily use while bringing out the natural colors and patterns of the select species. The glass used for the top has polished edges making it soft to the touch and non-marking to surrounding wood.

U Be and U Trek tables are available in wenge, grey oak and white oak.

Niels Bendtsen

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 Scandinavain 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 incresing 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.
Bensen is a design and manufacturing group founded in 1981 by Niels Bendtsen. Along with his staff, Bendtsen designs and oversees production of an extensive line of furnishings. The Bensen philosophy balances simplicity and honesty so that the designs may continue to grow in today's ever changing world.
