Attractive from all sides and made from select materials, Homework is ideal for the home or office where a desk will be on view. Yet its aesthetics are easily matched by its utility.
An innovative detail allows drawers to "float" below the highly durable glass top giving lightness to the design while also providing additional table area. A single drawer includes a concealed cable management compartment large enough to neatly organize multiple cables and accessories. Easily accessed through a sliding panel, contained cables are a cinch to get to, even in tight spaces. Drawers are carefully matched wood veneers. Drawer boxes are made of European birch plywood and equipped with soft-close runners that move silently and prevent slamming.
Homework 1 features a single drawer (right). Legs are available in painted Gun Metal or polished Chrome steel with clear polycarbonate feet. Select Walnut or White Oak veneer. Also offered in a double drawer + filing drawer version.
The Homework Desk is a fresh look at desk design. Notched drawers are cantilevered from the frame creating a floating appearance, yet the result is an extremely sturdy desk. This detail also makes assembly simple, with only a few bolts needed to assemble the entire desk.

Designer: Niels Bendtsen
Born in Denmark, Niels Bendtsen and his family immigrated to Canada in 1951. In place of a formal design education, Bendtsen 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, but he was also intrigued by new technologies and ways to satisfy increasing 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.
In the 1980's, he moved back to Vancouver, bought back his old store and added a manufacturing component. Using the skills he learned working with European factories, Bendtsen successfully found a balance between affordability, aesthetics and quality. Customers responded , and in the mid 1990's Bendtsen began making his designs available through other retailers.
Bendtsen's eye for simplicity and honesty is clearly visible in the sofas he has designed for the renowned Zurich based furniture brand, Linteloo.
Bensen was started in 1981 by designer Niels Bendtsen. Along with his staff, Bendtsen designs and oversees production of an extensive line of furnishings. The Bensen philosophy balances simplicity and honesty to produce designs that can continue to grow in today's ever changing world.
