bensen u turn club chair

by Niels Bendtsen, from Bensen

bensen u turn club chair

Design Niels Bendtsen, 2013
Molded foam, steel frame, metal base
Made in Italy by Bensen

U Turn is a modern evolution of the familiar club chair archetype. Its sophisticated form allows it be used in a wide variety of aesthetic environments from traditional to the most modern, and is suitable for contract use.

Its most distinctive visual element is the seat under-cut which provides foot space for greater ease when getting out of the chair. The generously scaled seat, back support, and luxurious seat cushion achieve superb comfort while occupying a surprisingly small footprint.

U Turn sits upon a discrete circular metal base that rotates smoothly through 360°. An internal steel frame and injection molded foam create engineered comfort and a tailored appearance.

29.5" w | 31.5" d | 27.25" h | seat: 15" h | 21.5" d

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. The Bensen philosophy balances simplicity and honesty so designs may continue to grow in todays ever changing world.
