1950s Danish "Boomerang" Arm Chairs by Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard Nielsen, Pair

$ 14,000
  • Description
    Hvidt & Mølgaard was a Copenhagen-based, Danish design and architectural firm which existed from 1944-2009. Founded by Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen, the company was a pioneering force in Danish furniture design in the 1950s, creating furniture that was easy to mass-produce and economic to transport.

    Debuted in 1956, this mid-century classic lounge chair by duo Hvidt & Molgaard, produced by France & Daverkosen, continues to delight today. From a hand-polished wooden frame that echoes the pleasant L-shaped symmetry of the boomerang, to the slender brass legs that delicately splay out an angle, this design endures as a masterpiece. Its appearance is contemporary, while prioritizing a great principle of modern Danish design: that of function. The tempered slant of the back rest ensures that one sits with ease, supported with minimal arm rests and sleek cushions.
