Design Niels Bendtsen
Molded foam, steel, webbing
Made in British Columbia by Bensen

Lotus is a multi-purpose lounge chair equally appropriate for home or commercial space. The result of a considered design process and advanced production techniques, its small scale hides a surprisingly spacious and comfortable seat that allows for numerous positions including side sitting.

The molded foam body combines an internal steel frame with elastic webbing for comfort and support, while expertly sewn covers create a tailored appearance. The strong yet lightweight nickel plated steel base features an internal return mechanism that centers the chair after sitting.

The Lotus chair is produced using advanced injection molding techniques adopted from the auto industry to create a superbly comfortable and sculptural chair. This production method is not only very efficient, but results in superior comfort and durability. The case aluminum base features an internal return mechanism that centers the chair after sitting and additional vertical springing. The base is available in either a mirror polished or matt black paint finish.

28.75" L | 26.75" d | 25.6" h | seat: 14.5" h

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.
