Model 78 side chair by Niels Otto Moller for J.L. Mollers Mobelfabrik.

In 1944, Niels Otto Møller founded J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik in Denmark. J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik produces chairs of extremely high quality, in timeless designs. The chairs are sold over the whole world and the Møller chair has become the epitome of Danish design.

Chairs from J.L. Møller are assembled using old craft techniques. As far as possible no modern technology is used. Each employee is a specialist in a specific process for creating each chair, giving it a unique quality and elegance. All tenons, mortices and dowels are glued by hand. Each chair is also polished by hand to give a better result than using a polishing machine.

The Nils Moller chair 78 was designed in 1962 and exemplifies the quality of design and construction. The frame is a reduced form, turned and carved to meet the user, providing comfort and character. It has been in continuous production marking this quiet design as a lasting classic.
