Design Niels Bendtsen
Steel frame, upholstery
Made in British Columbia by Bensen

The Canyon collection is a departure from the traditional sofa. On the one hand, Canyon has an elegant profile and clean lines; on the other, the Canyon uses novel construction techniques that become part of the aesthetic design. This marriage of form and function results in a lightness of appearance and weight while maintaining rigid strength, durability and longevity. The removable cover allows for a piece to be cleaned or replaced.

Canyon incorporates new construction processes and manufacturing procedures. Conventional sofas are assembled using wood frames onto which springs can be mounted and fabric stapled. In contrast, Canyon combines a welded steel frame with contoured foam, woven synthetic strapping and removable or replaceable covers. Canyon's welded steel frame allows it to endure longer than conventional wood framed seating. The steel frame is designed to have the same structural integrity when combined with multiple pieces. A woven suspension system used in the automotive industry is uniquely attached to the steel frame, adding superior support while creating a lighter appearance.

Canyon modular seating features almost unlimited variations of different components, allowing for variations of a piece between an ottoman, chair, sofa sizes or chaise bed in your choice of upholstery.

This set includes two CAN20 sofas with four back cushions and two bolsters as pictured. Other variations available, please call for details.

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.
