No 7 Lounge Chair
The unique lounge chair takes its inspiration from the ageless No 7 dining chair designed by Helge Sibast in 1953. Carrying on the high-quality craftsmanship and design heritage from his grandfather, Ditlev Sibast designed the lounge chair as a respectful and endearing transformation of the original dining chair together with his wife, Anna, and in cooperation with New York-based designer Marcus Hannibal.
The kinship with the dining chair is emphasised by the large moulded backrest and the gently tapered back legs. Other key qualities of the design include the laid-back comfort and simple expression. The lounge chair descends from the timeless beauty of the Danish Modern movement and is a bold and extraordinary design made with the fundamental attention to detail that runs in the Sibast family.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.
