No 7 Barstool
The refined barstool is the latest member of the Sibast No 7 family. It takes its origin from the timeless Sibast No 7 dining chair designed in 1953 by Helge Sibast and pays homage to the lines and the spirit of the Danish Modern movement from a contemporary perspective. The barstool was conceived in a close collaboration between the New York-based Danish designer Marcus Hannibal and Anna and Ditlev Sibast.
Using the unique details from the Sibast No 7, such as the large moulded backrest and the tapered back legs, the dining chair has been transformed into the bold and generous Sibast No 7 barstool. The upholstered seat and large backrest make the barstool exceptionally comfortable. It comes in two heights and fits perfectly into private residences as well as restaurants, bars and hotels. The new family member is of the same high quality and craftsmanship that form the backbone of the entire Sibast Furniture collection.Solid Oak, Leather or Wool, Handcrafted in Denmark
Helge Sibast, grandfather of Ditlev Sibast, was a talented woodworker who had a fresh take on handcrafted, modern design. Helge took over his own father’s business and began expanding, challenging woodwork as an art form and bringing his own designs to fruition. By the 1950’s and 60’s Helge had created a furniture factory employing over 120 craftsmen who were crafting some of the finest furniture in Danish design history.
In 1985 Helge Sibast passed away and Sibast Furniture was no more. This is when Anna and Ditlev Sibast had a stroke of imagination in 2013 and decided to re-design the chair Sibast No 8, a unique piece of furniture with a truly beautiful form. After much development they are reinterpreting the traditional designs for our modern day and age. Their goal is to create new pieces in the same vein, bringing Danish Design heritage back to life through craftsmanship.
