Introducing Tripod, a floor lamp from Hvidt & Molgaard in production for the first time.
Tripod, a floor lamp built from lacquered steel with brass details, reflects the clean minimalism of Copenhagen-based duo Hvidt & Molgaard. Considered Old Masters of mid-century Danish design, their pieces often lend a sculptural element to the spaces they inhabit.
Tripod is no exception. Named after the three-point composition of its base, the lamp's precise and simple look characterizes Hvidt & Molgaard's aesthetic. Its sculptural and sturdy design involves a heavy-weight spherical component at its base, which helps maintain constant balance and ensures that Tripod remains permanently positioned to offer a generous diffusion of light from beneath its brim.
"Tripod is a classic example of Hvidt & Molgaard's considered approach," says &Tradition CEO and founder Martin Kornbek Hansen. "It strikes a delicate balance between the stark simplicity of its design and the softness injected by the unusual rounded base. We are proud to be the first to manufacture it as we know its iconic form will add impact to any space."
Hvidt & Molgaard first produced sketches of Tripod in 1953,yet the lamp never found its way to production. Now, many years later, &Tradition is adding this elegant piece to its extensive lighting collection.
