Looking to create a versatile piece that would adapt to its environment, in 1956, the designer duo Hvidt & Mølgaard designed the DROP LEAF coffee table. As its name suggests, this beautiful oak or walnut table is built with an articulated section on each side which folds down from the fixed center.
Such a space-saving design allows it to adapt to a variety of spaces.
Unlike other tables of this style, the DROP LEAF coffee table can be folded by one person.
The foldable wooden frames of the table curve slightly outward, adding a subtle point of interest. The decision to use frames instead of legs as supports had another advantage: folded or stretched in the shape of a star, they create a clean and harmonious shape. On the underside of the table, the brass fittings shine.
Recognized for their rigorous approach to design, Hvidt & Mølgaard were pioneers in the shift towards industrialized production. Their understanding of traditional craft techniques was combined with the desire to make parts that are easy to assemble and produce on a large scale. & Tradition continues their heritage, taking great care to remain respectful of the original design.
