Coffee table Drop Leaf HM5, natural oak
A fresh edition of medieval design
Hvidt & Mølgaard
The range of tables, chairs and lighting fixtures has been rediscovered from medieval drawings by modernists Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard Nielsen and is now part of the family of the renowned Danish interior design brand & Tradition. Some of them are produced for the first time.
Both designers from Copenhagen were skilled furniture makers and are known for the ease of their work. Their work once paved the way for affordable international furniture trade and production.
The tradition-respecting interior brand & Tradition 2020 spring collection includes Hvidt & Mølgaard's elegant Dawn chair, various variations of the Drop Leaf table, the modular Pinwheel coffee table and the sculptural Tripod floor lamp.
Hvidt & Mølgaard designed the Drop Leaf table in 1956, when there was a desire to create something versatile that would blend in with its surroundings and environment. The result was a solid wood table with round shapes that can be easily folded thanks to its clever design. The tabletop, as the name implies ('leaf'), finds inspiration in the round shape of the leaf.
The Drop Leaf table is available in walnut wood, which was especially loved in the Middle Ages, and in oil-treated oak wood. The modern contrast to the molded wood is the eye-catching brass hinges and details.
