ABOUT SIBAST No 8 DINING
In 1953 Helge Sibast designed SIBAST No 8 DINING. As a skilled cabinetmaker Helge loved working with wood and he enjoyed challenging the wooden material’s possibilities. In 2013 Helges grandson and his wife, Anna and Ditlev Sibast, relaunched the family’s design heritage.
Sibast No 8 DINING is a fine example of the Danish Modern movement. The characteristic Y-shaped legs, floating seat and moulded backrest gives the chair its unique and iconic appearance.
