The Homework Desk is an elegant and highly versatile work desk that is available in two sizes. Each desk can be ordered with single, double, or file drawers, and may be configured according to individual needs. Attractive from all sides and made from select materials, Homework is ideal for the home or office where a desk will be on view. Homework is precision made with clear glass or wood top, chromed steel, premium veneers, and ultra high-gloss finish.

The Homework Desk is a fresh look at desk design. An innovative detail allows the drawers to 'float' below the glass top giving lightness to the design while also providing additional table area. This detail also makes assembly simple, with only a few bolts needed to assemble the whole desk.

Legs are made from either mirror finished chromed steel or a gun metal finish with clear polycarbonate feet. Drawers are offered in wood veneer. Drawer boxes are made of European birch plywood and equipped with soft-close runners that move silently and prevent slamming. The file drawer can be adjusted easily for letter or legal-size files. Each drawer includes a concealed cable management compartment large enough to neatly organize multiple cables and accessories.

Homework desk with wood top is made with premium veneers and solid wood edging on an MDF substrate, and expertly painted with European clear matt lacquer. The wood top accompanies the veneered drawer cabinets of the same finish for an all-wood version of the desk. Glass top not supplied with wood top desks.

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.
