Sibast No 7 DINING
The ageless dining chair designed by Helge Sibast in 1953 has a unique character and a bold design. As an accomplished cabinetmaker as well as furniture architect, Helge Sibast not only designed but personally crafted his original furniture, which often challenged traditional ways of working with wood. The characteristic moulded backrest is a defining element that not only lends the chair its bold personality but also ensures outstanding seating comfort. The gently tapered back legs give the design a light and elegant appearance. Likewise, the seat construction lifts the seat free of the legs, contributing to the clean and simple expression. An original dining chair of enduring beauty and quality.Sibast No 7 is crafted exclusively from FSC® – certified oak or beech from sustainable forests.

A COMMITMENT TO PRESERVE AND CONTINUE THE DESIGN LEGACY
One of Helge Sibast’s most noteworthy designs is the Sibast No 7 dining chair. With its easily recognisable profile and embracing, curved back, the chair is designed by this Danish furniture designer in 1953 is accompanied by a matching lounge chair and a tall barstool bringing together the Sibast No 7 family.
1953 was a productive year for Danish furniture designer Helge Sibast, internationally renowned for his distinctive chairs, several of which were created during the early 1950s. 1953 also saw the launch of the Sibast No 7 dining chair. Like the Sibast No 8 and 9 chairs, this dining chair with its embracing back embodies powerful visual design elements. It remains an outstanding contribution from the golden age of Danish furniture design and holds a place of honour as an iconic piece of furniture in modern, contemporary contexts more than seven decades after its original launch.
The reason Sibast No 7 is still relevant today is not least because the chair was already innovative in 1953. Helge Sibast, a visionary designer with a refined sense of materials and a keen eye for the craft, dared take his design to the brink of what was technically possible. The furniture designer’s daring design is clearly expressed in Sibast No 7, which is primarily characterised by its wide, extraordinarily curved top rail. In this chair, Helge Sibast tested the limits of moulding technology at the time.
