The exclusive and elegant side table was designed by Helge Sibast in the late 1950s. He made it as a gift for his wife, and for many years only three bespoke pieces existed, handed down as precious gifts within the family until they found their present home with Anna and Ditlev Sibast. The side table has been put into production by the current owners of the family company with the purpose of sharing this warm gift and beautiful design. Originally, the side table was made with a black glass plate in the centre of the table top, emphasising the minimalist design. Today, the tabletop is also available in white marble and soap finish that complement the wooden structure.

The year was 1908. In the countryside on the island of Funen in Denmark the son of a skilled cabinetmaker was born. His name was Helge Sibast.
Helge Sibast grew up and became his fathers apprentice. He worked hard, dedicated and soon developed skills of high quality craftsmanship. He took over his fathers business and began expanding. Thinking about craftsmanship in a new way. He had a natural sense for challenging wood as a material and began creating his own designs.
By the 1950’s and 60’s he had created a furniture factory employing over 120 craftsmen crafting some of the finest furniture in Danish design history. The furniture was sold around the world. The company was called Sibast Furniture. That man was my grandfather.
