Peter Hvidt was born in 1916 and died in 1986. Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen was born in 1907 and died in 1993. The pair worked together from 1944 to 1975. Their major breakthrough came in 1950 when the tandom designed the AX chair series for Fritz Hansen. The AX chair was unique in that it was the first chair with a seat and back both of double curved laminated wood.
Hvidt and Mølgaard went on to design for other companies such as Ludwig Pontoppidan, Søborg Møbelfabrik and France & Søn. It was with Søborg and expecially France & Søn, that some of their most impressive designs were realized. The line of storge units for Søborg were created using solid teak timbers and are highly sought after to this day. The daybeds and tables designed for France & Søn also rely on solid wood construction both in teak and in Brazilian rosewood, and are still classics. The firm they started still exists to this day.
