Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen for Søborg Møbelfabrik, cabinet, teak, Denmark, 1950s.
This cabinet executed in solid teak is a design by the Danish designers Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen. It convinces both visual and functional, as characteristic for Danish mid-century design. The high-quality craftsmanship is notable in the details as the recessed hemisphere wooden handles. Moreover, the joinery of this piece is very well made, as is visible in the box joints on the outer edge of the top and bottom.
Danish designer duo Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993) worked together between 1944-1975. The couple, originally trained as architects, designed around 250 furniture objects. The first dismountable chair has been designed by the couple, that created an enormous boost for the Danish furniture export. In 1950, their best-known design, the AX-chair went into production by Fritz Hansen. The implementation of double bent laminated wood, a technique normally used to produce tennis rackets, was a huge breakthrough for the upscaling of furniture production as it reduces the average production time. Thanks to this revolutionary technique, Denmark became the leader in Modern furniture manufacturing.
