Nordisk Solar Compagni’s Safari pendant light, pictured below, is often attributed to Jørgen Gammelgaard, but was in fact designed in the 1970s by engineer Christian Hvidt together with his architect father Peter Hvidt (1916–1986) and his father’s business partner at Hvidt & Mølgaard Design, Orla Mølgaard (aka Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen) (1907–1993). In 1981 they were jointly awarded an iF Product Design Award for the light.

Hvidt & Mølgaard Design are best known for their furniture – notably the Ax chair, designed in 1950 for Fritz Hansen, and the 1956 Boomerang chair for France & Son – but they also created several lamps for Le Klint.
