ABOUT the MAKER

Sika Design

Sika Design's passion & understanding of rattan dates back decades. Sika has been around long enough to call themselves Scandinavia's oldest producer of rattan & wicker furniture. 

Sika began in 1942 when Ankjaer Andreasen produced the first batch of baskets, lamps, flower tables and other smaller interior items made of rush and willow. In the 1950s Ankjaer expanded his production to include a furniture series made from rattan, and the company Sika-Design was firmly established. 

The ICONS collection revitalises iconic pieces of furniture from some of Europe's most skilled and important architects and designers. Arne Jacobsen, Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel, Viggo Boesen and Franco Albini were all pioneers of their time - they broke new ground when they made experimental shapes with the sturdy materials of rattan and wicker and created sculptural and timeless icons. With great respect and admiration for the original designs and in close collaboration with the descendants of these renowned furniture makers, Sika Design is pleased to be able to bring these icons back.
