Helge Sibast

Helge Sibast (1908-1985) was a Danish cabinetmaker and designer who continued the work of his father Peder Olsen Sibast. Besides a skillful carpenter, Helge Sibast was also a visionary designer, and in the 1950s and 1960s his simple, functional and high-quality designs gained success also outside Denmark, and even made their way to the White House. His best known designs, Sibast chairs No 7 and 8, Helge Sibast designed in 1953. In the 21st century Sibast’s tradition is carried on by Sibast Furniture, which was relaunched in 2012 by Helge Sibast’s grandson and his wife.
