or Call to Order

Follow­ing the success of its floor lamp, &Tradition has extended the series to intro­duce the Tripod HM9 table lamp, main­tain­ing the same time­less design prin­ci­ples. The Tripod table lamp, crafted from powder-coated steel with brass details, embod­ies the clean mini­mal­ism char­ac­ter­is­tic of the renowned mid-century Danish design duo Hvidt & Mølgaard, consid­ered Old Masters in their field.

Known for infus­ing sculp­tural elements into their designs, Hvidt & Mølgaard’s influ­ence is evident in the Tripod HM9 table lamp. This scaled-down version retains the elegance and simplic­ity of its larger coun­ter­part, provid­ing a versa­tile light­ing solu­tion for various inte­rior settings. The table lamp is avail­able in three contem­po­rary colors: Black, Maroon, and Moss, offer­ing flex­i­bil­ity to suit diverse design preferences.


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.
