Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen Chair Model '6103' in Cane

About the Item

Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen for Fritz Hansen, 'X-chair model '6103', cane, wood, beech, Denmark, designed in 1958 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. This iconic and sculptural chair is executed in cane which forms a great contrast with the wood and forms a very warm and natural balance. 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.
