Bendtsen Design Associates (BDA) is a multi-faceted Design Studio based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The studio is comprised of Niels Bendtsen, Giancarlo Stefani, and studio support staff; between them, there is a broad range of experience, expertise, and know-how that is translated into every product the studio develops.
Both sons of cabinet makers, Niels Bendtsen and Giancarlo Stefani grew up in close proximity to furniture and realized early on that they wanted to spend their lives working in Design. From Denmark, and Italy, to Venezuela, and finally to Canada – both men have worked extensively in the field and have found a synergy in each other’s work.
More recently, the studio has been honored with the prestigious Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum and Best Of Year award by Interior Design Magazine.
BDA continues its activity collaborating with renowned international brands as Flos, Moroso, Allsteel, HNI, DWR, Keilhauer, Linteloo, Montis and Bensen; Niels’s own brand.
