The Torii Chair has been named after Japanese word for 'bird abode', the gateway to sacred Shinto shrines, inspired by the chair's distinctive shape and traditional joinery methods.

Defined by its closely-spaced back legs and perch-like curved backrest, Torii conceals inherent sturdiness in spite of its light aesthetic.

The chair has passed Level 2 tests for commercial seating, simulating heavy use, and has been crafted with traditional exposed mortise and tenon joinery. The seat, in either plywood or leather upholstery, has been secured with dowels and special metal fittings, while the backrest is joined with steel dowels and epoxy glue.

The Bensen Torii Chair is available in black stained ash, white oak or walnut with a black leather seat, or black stained ash with a plywood seat. For other fabrics, please email websales@viaduct.co.uk or call our showroom on 020 7278 8456.

Bensen blend Scandinavian design sensibilities with Italian manufacturing expertise.

Founder Niels Bendtsen's love of design stemmed from exposure to his father's work as a cabinet maker, who first learnt his craft from Jacob Kjær in Copenhagen. As an adult, Niels left Canada to return to his father's native Scandinavia where he worked with high profile brands such as IKEA and Kebe, for whom he designed the Ribbon Chair that now holds a place in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

After returning to Vancouver from Europe, Niels founded Bensen furniture with an aim to provide great designs and quality at an accessible price. He joined forces with Paolo Chiarot to share his designs with Europe again. From their Italian factory, they now produce bestselling pieces such as the mid-century inspired Edward Sofa, Tokyo and Torii Chairs. ..
