Bensen is a design and manufacturing group that was founded in 1981 by Niels Bendtsen and is based in Vancouver, Canada. Along with his staff, Danish-born Bendtsen not only designs the pieces for Bensen, but also oversees production of its extensive line of home furnishings – sofas, sectionals, tables, chairs, stools, credenzas, cabinets, and beds. According to Bendsten, “Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude to design. Craftsmanship is just as much about how you run the machines that are necessary for economic viability.” Bensen’s philosophy of balancing simplicity and honesty in design is a sentiment that Switch Modern shares. While we have just started adding Bensen designs to our website, we expect to shortly be showing a greater range of pieces and typologies… in the meantime, please contact us for specific information regarding pieces not currently highlighted.
