as an architect in Oslo, he was taken to Christiania Glassmagasin as head of the
drawing office in 1942, with the main focus of light fixture . His first
challenge was collaborated with the architects at the new City Hall in Oslo
about lighting rooms and rooms. The chandeliers were carried out by Hadeland
Glassworks and Høvik Verk, and were completed in 1948-49.
Most of Hidles products are special ordered lighting equipment. Some of
these fixtures have been used for several missions and some are later put into
production. The main materials in Hidles work are glass and brass, both used in
a variety of different techniques and often mixed together.
