Renowned for the defining simplicity of their work, Hvidt & Mølgaard designed Tripod in 1953 but only now is it being produced by &Tradition. In line with the pioneering duo’s original sketches, the floor lamp takes shape in matte-lacquered steel with brass details, striking a delicate balance between its clean angular line and the softness of the curved edges at the base. The distinctive shade is spun from a single piece of aluminum and the base is made from bent steel tubes and welded together in this now-rediscovered midcentury masterstroke.

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it: "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."
With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
