Designed in 1962, Møller 78 is instantly recognisable as a shining example of Scandinavian design at its finest.
A designer particularly close to Great Dane’s heart, Niels Otto Møller (1920-1982) is one of the most influential furniture craftsmen of his time. Proud to stand by practices that have been around since he opened his workshop in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1944, Møller’s family-run business legacy is to never compromise on quality – where old craft traditions are still used today.
Handwoven using tightly twisted paper from one continuous 129-metre-long piece of cord, it is designed to improve with age and easily withstand decades of frequent use. Renowned for its design quality and skilled craftsmanship, each chair is polished by hand, ensuring no detail is overlooked.
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.
With our Scandinavian artisans in high demand, Great Dane’s new Reserve Collection ensures an exclusive supply of our most coveted designs. These products are handcrafted after ordering.
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.
