Niels Otto Møller founded his Danish furniture factory in 1944 with the ambition to never compromise on quality.
Designed in the late 1950s, the Møller #57 Carver chair is characterised by its exquisite and careful refined detailing. Møller incorporated the traditional, twisted paper cord into the seat design of his chairs, synonymous with Scandinavian design today. Today, J. L. Møller is run by Niels’ granddaughter Kristen Møller who took over from her father, Jorgen, in 2018. Kristen brings a youthful approach to the business, while honouring the traditional craftsmanship and the Møller factory proudly remains a workshop free of assembly lines.
Available exclusively in Australia with Great Dane, our longstanding relationship with Møller allows us to proudly showcase these materials and skills, ensuring their beauty continues to be passed down from one generation to the next.
Niels Otto Møller’s stubbornness in upholding exceptional craftsmanship and his brilliant execution of beautiful, timeless chair design is the reasoning behind the J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik distinguished reputation and a leading exponent of Danish furniture’s indisputable success all over the world.
At the Møller Factory all pieces are hand finished, never by machines. Dedicated craftspeople weave single lengths of paper cord to create durable, classic and beautiful iconic timber and paper cord chairs and benches.
