Marquis Bench by Chad Jensen

The Marquis Bench designed and crafted by Chad Jensen is a blend of art and design. Made of cypress and leather, the bench displays a true craftsmanship and work of art. The core principal of Chad’s work is to cross-pollinate fine art with design by making art more accessible and tactile, and to give every day objects greater context. His belief is that the vocabulary learned through the process of making can never be imagined without the physical relationship and that only when you begin to perfect your craft you can begin to add your voice.

Chad Jensen was born in 1977 in Detroit, MI. He drew inspiration from the raw industrialized nature of Detroit, which was an intrinsic part of his childhood and upbringing. Prior to earning his BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies/Furniture Design from College of Creative Studies, Chad obtained an Associate’s Degree in Business. Throughout his schooling Chad took up the trade architectural woodwork, progressing thru an apprenticeship to become a high level craftsman. Finding the correlation with other media, Chad also acquired formal education and experience in metal, hot glass, ceramics, and fibers.
