No 7 Dining Chair
The ageless dining chair designed by Helge Sibast in 1953 has a unique character and a bold design. As an accomplished cabinetmaker as well as furniture architect, Helge Sibast not only designed but personally crafted his original furniture, which often challenged traditional ways of working with wood.
The characteristic moulded backrest is a defining element that not only lends the chair its bold personality but also ensures outstanding seating comfort. The gently tapered back legs give the design a light and elegant appearance. Likewise, the seat construction lifts the seat free of the legs, contributing to the clean and simple expression. An original dining chair of enduring beauty and quality.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.
