Born in Denmark, Niels Bendtsen and his family emigrated to Canada in 1951. In place of a formal design education, he trained as an apprentice for his father, who designed and built Scandinavian furniture.
Through working with his father, Bendtsen gained valuable skills and a respect for non-industrial, hand-built traditions. He was also intrigued by new technologies and ways to satisfy increasing demand.
Bendtsen has worked extensively with Dutch manufacturer Montis but has also gone on to create his own manufacturing company, Bensen. An early Bendtsen design, the Ribbon Chair, is included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
