Tokyo Chair

tokyo chair

Design Niels Bendtsen, 2014
Ash, oak or walnut, leather seat
Made in Italy by Bensen

Solid wood with a removable saddle leather seat, the Tokyo chair nods to traditional Danish and Japanese designs while maintaining an active footing in the present.

A continuous ribbon of shaped solid wood creates the distinctive back and connects to the legs with traditional mortise and tenon construction. The finish is an advanced low build water-based polyurethane that gives the wood a natural open-grain appearance which is both smooth to touch yet very durable. The saddle leather seat is expertly cut, sewn and applied to a multi-layered seat structure to ensure a perfect fit for many years to come.

23.5" w | 19.75" d | 28" h | seat: 18" h | arms: 26" 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.
