Driven by a burning passion infused with a sense of design and artisanal detail Helge Sibast’s expressive design inspired Danish artist Kasper Eistrup. He contacted Ditlev and Anna Sibast after the relaunch of Sibast No 8 to present his idea of creating a limited edition of the chair. Based on a palette of radiant sunrise colours, Kasper Eistrup enlivened the design with colour.

This resulted in the Sibast No 8 Sunrise, a work of functional art in a numbered edition limited to 88 pieces.

”Initally I never intended to alterthe chair as its expression seemed next to perfect, but Ditlev Sibast’s great enthusiasm led me to suggest a new perspective. Sunrise and sunsets have been reoccurring subjects in my work, representing an eternal spiral of passing and coming. One mans death is another mans birth. In this context it felt natural that the chair would embody a sunrise, the seat resembling the sun and the backrest its rays. Painting the prototype by hand, the colours were tweaked endlessly until we found a palette that looked like the sunrise I so dearly love. It is a great testament to the virtuosity of its design, that Sibast No 8 can carry an artistic reimagination like this, while still maintaining the original idea of its creator in clean, crisp and poetic lines.”
