Get creative in the bedroom with Brix (2009). This modular dresser collection is the work of Niels Bendtsen, who is known for his ability to combine non-industrial, hand-built traditions with new technologies and ways to satisfy increasing demand. Before designing Brix, he was intrigued by the idea that every person’s storage needs are different, but the typical size and shape of dressers are all the same. Problem solved. Brix can be made as wide or tall as you wish, and you can even combine drawers of different colors. To create your own unique piece, call us at 1.800.944.2233 or visit a DWR Studio – we’re happy to help. Simple assembly required. Made in Italy.
High-density wood composite panels; high-gloss lacquer finish; European birch plywood drawers; steel-reinforced top panels; push-latch drawer glides; steel platform base with hidden leveling glides.
"Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude toward design. Craftsmanship is just as much about how you run the machines that are now necessary for economic viability."
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.
