Hvidt & Mølgaard

Established in Copenhagen in 1944 Hvidt & Mølgaard a.k.a Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993) were pioneers of Danish design, who developed numerous furniture designs that have become classics of Danish furniture art due to their innovative content, especially in the area of industrial production. Hvidt & Mølgaard's oeuvre includes alongside furniture with a simple, clear shape, lighting designs, such as the Model 161 for the Danish lighting manufacturer Le Klint.

Pioneers of Danish design art

Classic Danish design

One of Hvidt & Mølgaard's most famous furniture designs is the AX chair from 1947, which was produced by Fritz Hansen. Today the manufacturer &Tradition have re-issued classics such as the Boomerang lounge chair, the avant-garde Drop Leaf dining table and the minimalist Tripod floor lamp.

Up until the 1970s, Hvidt & Mølgaard increasingly realized architectural projects, including office buildings, factories, private homes and were consulted on bridge projects. In 1975 Peter Hvidt finally retired and Hans Kristensen became a new partner in the company, so that from 1983 Hvidt & Mølgaard was run by Hans Kristensen, Peter Holsøe and Peter Hvidt's son, Henrik Hvidt. Other international architectural projects followed. In 2009, the Copenhagen studio finally split, resulting in the architecture offices Hvidt Architects and Holsøe Architects.
