The underlying concept of XLIBRIS has been growing and developing in Kasper Eistrup’s mind for almost four years. It was originally stimulated by the artist’s own need for a workplace shelf in his atelier and subsequently by his aversion to shelf brackets. Initially as a personal project, Eistrup teamed up with Sibast Furniture to develop two pieces of multifunctional furniture: a wall-mounted, self-supporting shelf and a matching table, both with an ultra-slim silhouette and a light style, reminiscent of Japanese origami art and completely devoid of brackets. Despite its apparent simplicity, XLIBRIS is brimming with small artisanal and functional details. Both the shelf and the wall-mounted desk are assembled without visible screws, emphasising the impression of XLIBRIS as two integrated pieces of furniture that seemingly grow out of the wall.
The Sibast Furniture collection is designed and manufactured to last for generations. It is made with the same attention to detail, craftsmanship and high quality as our ancestors. To ensure it ages gracefully and with the longest lifespan, it is important that it is properly maintained and cared for as recommended in our maintenance and care instructions. All furniture included in the Sibast Furniture collection is made out of natural material such as wood, fabric and leather. This means that differences will occur in both finishes and material and that natural markings in the leather hides as well as natural variations in the surface of the wood and the colour of the finishes must be appreciated and expected.
