Hvidt & Mølgaard’s Fog & Mørup light design

Posted by modblog 17/12/2010 0 Comment(s) Fog & Mørup,Other Designers,

Peter Hvidt (1916–1986) and his business partner Orla Mølgaard (aka Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen) (1907–1993) are best known for their furniture – in particular the Ax chair, designed in 1950 for Fritz Hansen, and the 1956 Boomerang chair for France & Son – but they also created lamps for Le Klint and Nordisk Solar Compagni.

Less well known is the fact that they designed a light in the mid to late 1970s for Fog & Mørup. Entitled Dome and described by F&M at the time as "untraditional", the lamp featured a translucent plastic globe with an aluminium shade in brown, red, yellow or white, and was intended for use in locations such as bathrooms and hallways.
