or Call to Order

The AX Lounge chair by Hvidt & Mølgaard for &Tradition is a classic piece of furni­ture that show­cases the inno­v­a­tive use of plywood and expert crafts­man­ship. The design is notable for its pioneer­ing use of 3D plywood shaping, a ground­break­ing tech­nique at the time of its creation.

One of the chair’s stand­out features is the contin­u­ous curve of the armrests, which is mirrored in the frame. This design element adds visual appeal and reflects the design­ers’ back­ground in Danish cabi­netry, where atten­tion to detail and preci­sion are paramount.

The chair’s construc­tion is engi­neered with a focus on ergonom­ics, ensur­ing excep­tional comfort. This atten­tion to comfort has earned the AX Lounge chair a repu­ta­tion as one of its most comfort­able wooden chairs. Avail­able in options such as Lacquered Oak and Walnut or Dark Stained Oak and Walnut, the AX Lounge chair combines time­less design with versa­tile finishes to comple­ment various interior styles.


Hvidt & Mølgaard


Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993) were pioneers of Danish mid-century design and the founders of Copenhagen-based firm Hvidt & Mølgaard. Renowned for the simplicity of their works, the duo established a simple and precise aesthetic designing countless pieces of furniture over the years, many of which became icons of the era. Their forward-thinking approach to industrialized production paved the way for a new movement that drew upon classical craftsmanship techniques to make affordable, beautifully crafted home furnishings.

Both Hvidt and Mølgaard-Nielsen boasted superior technical skills. Mølgaard-Nielsen studied furniture design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under the tutelage of Kaare Klint, while Hvidt gained knowledge of traditional craftsmanship during his time studying cabinetry at the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. Today, their work can be found exhibited at MoMA, Melbourne’s National Gallery, and Copenhagen’s Design Museum.
