High-density wood composite, lacquer, birch, steel
Made in Italy by Bensen

Brix is a modular stacking drawer system that can be arranged in almost endless configurations. Its versatility comes from its simplicity, resulting in a system that can be adapted, reconfigured, and expanded over time. The pre-assembled modules are combined easily using simple pin-and-cam mechanisms to create rigid units that can be stacked to any height, while a steel under-frame provides strength and stability, along with the ability to gang units together seamlessly.

Brix is made from high-density wood composite panels painted with a premium high gloss lacquer that is offered in various colors. Tops are reinforced with steel to support heavy loads, while drawers are equipped with concealed push-latch slides for silent and easy opening. The drawer boxes themselves are made with Bensen's standard European Birch plywood, but with taped top edges for a more finished look.

The two base options provide different advantages. The steel fin legs provide a way to lock ganged units together, and create the appearance of a single continuous unit. Panel bases allow units to sit low on the ground and are equipped with hidden levellers for adjustment on uneven floors. Both options ensure a tight fit when units are placed side by side.

Order one Top box, and one Base for each freestanding cabinet, plus the quantity of additional Mid box drawers required. Back side is a light grey melamine finish. Please note: fin base is more suitable for carpeted floors. Assembly required.

Niels Bendtsen

Bendtsen gained valuable skills and a respect for hand-built traditions as an apprentice, and was intrigued by new technologies. Between 1963 and 1972, Bendtsen had his own retail store where he sold 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.
The Bensen philosophy balances simplicity and honesty. Designer Niels Bendtsen trained as an apprentice with his father building Scandinavian furniture and gained skills & respect for hand built traditions.
