Hvidt & Mølgaard-Nielsen
A legacy in modern furniture & architecture.
Founded in 1944, the architecture company and it's designer duo 'Hvidt & Mølgaard' became a pioneering force in Danish furniture design: creating furniture with simplicity, modularity and easiness for industrial production – as well as for an economic transport – made them to a global player. They have designed over 250 pieces for companies such as Fritz Hansen, France & Son and Søborg Møbelfabrik. Their 'AX' chair has been exhibited in 1951 as part of the 'Good Design' show at MoMA and became one of their iconic design – loved for it's refined form, robust construction and ability to easily flat pack. A compact and multi-functional design language became the signature of Hvidt & Mølgaard – to fit the modern living in smaller apartments. Although industrial produced, the designs were carefully worked out down to the smallest detail. As a result, they truly left their mark on the world of interior design and furnishing.
The Scandinavian climate can be harsh with long cold winters, so the home has always been an important place of refuge. What makes the Nordic home so special is the distinct warmth and cosiness that is achieved through simple yet elegant interior furnishing. The Scandinavians excelled in a form of modernism that embraced the natural world and combined functionalism with a respect for tradition.
Creating unique spaces with our Mid-Century furnitures is our mission, which we realize with our project team of "Deraum". Room installations are showing a personal view of one specific curated story. Another mission is, to raise consciousness for sustainability and a sense for special objects, furniture and art, by visualizing the objects in an intimate context.
