or Call to Order

The Tripod HM8 floor lamp, a design by Hvidt & Mølgaard for &Tradition, is a testa­ment to the endur­ing appeal of its 1953 design, now brought into produc­tion for the first time. Constructed from lacquered steel with brass details, the lamp achieves a deli­cate balance between stark simplic­ity and soft­ened elegance through the gently curved edges of its base.

In addi­tion to its time­less design, the Tripod HM8 floor lamp is now avail­able in three contem­po­rary colors — Black, Maroon, and Moss — expand­ing its versa­til­ity and comple­ment­ing modern inte­rior aesthet­ics. This rein­tro­duc­tion of a classic design show­cases its endur­ing rele­vance and ability to inte­grate seam­lessly into contemporary spaces.


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.
