Pair of Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen "Model 6103 X-Chairs" for Fritz Hansen
A pair of “X” lounge chairs, model 6103 is designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen for Fritz Hansen, Denmark, c.1958. The iconic design that is the the X-form truly gives a great impression visually. The detailing of this X-design continuously runs from the base/legs of the chair to the high point of the back holding the rattan back and seating. They developed a specific method of building up layers of laminate around a solid core, in this case in laminated beech with a darker wood. These details and its sculptural form give the chairs a graceful characteristic.
Hvidt & Mølgaard had an established design and architectural firm where they became pioneers in Danish design that advanced the industrialized production of furniture. They both retired in 1975, designing over 256 pieces of furniture together over the course of their careers.
