Sibast is best known for its collaboration with Arne Vodder in the 50s and 60s; a partnership that produced some of the most collectible Danish designs including cabinetry, tables and seating. The dining set is part of a suite of Vodder furniture which also includes a tambour door rosewood sideboard. Sideboard currently available.

Danish born Arne Vodder studied in Copenhagen under his friend and mentor, Finn Juhl. The pair later worked together as they went on to establish themselves as the pre-eminent Scandinavian designers of the mid-century period. In 1951, Arne Vodder began collaborating with designer Anton Berg. The pair worked together on over 1000 modular housing projects with one of Denmark’s largest builders. Over the next few years, Vodder began working with Fritz Hansen, France & Son, Cado and Sibast, which launched a range of Arne Vodder furniture in 1959. Vodder worked with Sibast through the late 50s and 60s.

Denmark lost a legendary designer when Arne Vodder died in 2009, aged 83.
