Lean Mirror, Narrow
Note: This product is no longer available.
Lean is a departure from the traditional picture frame mirror. It is full-length, floating off the floor and resting gracefully against the wall at a 5-degree angle, reflecting an image head to toe at a close distance. At the same time, the noticeable separation from the wall gives the Lean Mirror grace and presence. It is simple in form, yet its appeal is in the details. The mirrored surface contrasts with a thick wood panel. The lip at the base of the frame that holds the mirror in place is the same depth as the glass, making for a sleek, seamless unified surface.
Lean sits on inset rubber feet that protect the frame from the floor. Each mirror includes a wall mount safety bracket, which securely holds the mirror to the wall. Select Walnut or White Oak veneer.
Lean is a combination of core panel construction and veneers. This construction ensures increased structural stability with low weight through a process of heat fusion of panels to substrate for a permanent bond. The edge grain of the wood follows the direction of the panels. The clear lacquer coat protects the veneer from daily use, while bringing out the natural colors and patterns of select species. The 0.2" thick mirrored glass has polished edges and is carefully bonded to the structural frame. Select Walnut or White Oak veneer.

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.
