XLIBRIS Wall Desk
Sibast Furniture collaborated with Danish artist Kasper Eistrup in developing the XLIBRIS series. This particular piece is a wall-mounted, self-supporting desk/table with an ultra-slim silhouette and a light style that takes influence from Japanese origami. The design uses 45 degree lines from the side of the shelf to the front edge of the board.
The underlying idea of this series is that both pieces of furniture can function in their own right or change function and style by combining multiple shelves, horizontally or vertically. This makes them well suited for a wide variety of interiors - at home or in the office.
Furnished with an exclusive brass emblem mounted on the side, the emblem is made up of four hearts joined into a four-leaf clover. The hearts symbolise a predilection for necessity, functionality, the material and the craft – all of which were involved in the development of XLIBRIS. The wall-mounted desk is assembled without visible screws, emphasising the impression of XLIBRIS as integrated pieces of furniture that seemingly grow out of the wall.Material - Solid Oak (Natural Oil & Smoke Oak). Handcrafted in Denmark. Ships from Denmark. Designed by Kasper Eistrup. Wall Desk - 80x50x50 cm. Delivery time: 2-3 weeks.
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.
