or Call to Order

The 1956 Drawn chair by Hvidt & Mølgaard stands out as a defin­i­tive piece of Danish design. Relying upon tradi­tional crafts­man­ship tech­niques and built out of organic mate­ri­als, it brings a sense of whole­some honesty to any space. Avail­able in oiled oak, oiled walnut, soaped oak, and the newest addi­tion of black lacquered oak. It comes in two versions: a wider model with arm rests, or one without. Addi­tion­ally, a cushion in either Prescott black or cognac coloured leather is offered for a softer seating experience.

Hvidt & Mølgaard

Denmark

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.
