No 8 Dining Chair
Designed by Helge Sibast in 1953, the dining chair soon made its way into homes all over the world due to its sublime quality and iconic design. The chair has been re-launched by the fourth generation of the Sibast family as a vital design classic from the Danish Modern movement and a signature design from Sibast Furniture.
The chair’s characteristic Y-shaped legs, floating seat and moulded backrest demand high-quality craftsmanship in order to achieve the unique expression. The bold and complex design of the iconic chair was perfected by Helge Sibast in the workshop and has an inherent beauty that transcends time and place. A true design classic to treasure and pass on to future generations.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.
