mick stool

Design Niels Bendtsen, 2008
Upholstery, matt chromed metal base
Made in Holland by Montis

With his roguish 'lips' Mick seems to always welcome us with a broad smile.

Many modern homes are equipped with comfortable kitchens where people not only eat their meals but also can sit back and relax as well. It is these types of kitchens Montis had in mind when they designed 'Mick'. With a seat consisting of two hollow, geometric shapes, the stool gives your body the kind of support you need, providing firm seating despite the stool's compact size. The small, solid seat is luxurious with beautifully detailed upholstery. You can use any high quality leather cover by Montis to customize Mick to your style.

Niels Bendtsen 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 exhibited in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

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.
Montis was established in 1974 and quickly focused on modern design with superior seating comfort. The Montis collection stands out with unique color combinations and with their use of various leathers. The company set itself apart from its competitors and achieves high comfort by often applying upholstery to a chair, which was often disregarded in a movement that usually stripped furniture to its essentials. Their techniques came to be regarded as distinctly Dutch.
