Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard Nielsen 'X' Chair


Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen ‘X’ chair, canvas, teak, Denmark, 1950s

Beautiful X-chair designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen, canvas upholstery. This chair is for obvious reasons nicknamed the X-chair. The detailing of this X-design runs all the way from the front legs to the rear showing a burl wood inlay and highly skilled laminated wood work. Very sculptural and elegant chair with canvas. The canvas shows signs of age and use 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.
