Niels Otto Møller (1920-1981) completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in 1939, and continued his education at the Danish Design School in Aarhus. In 1944, he founded J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik A/S and worked as an independent furniture designer and producer. Under his careful tutelage and creative direction, the company has received many awards, including the Danish Furniture Prize awards in 1974 and 1981. Today the Møller name carries the same reputation for dedication to traditional craftsmanship. There are no assembly lines at the Møller workshop, and each piece of timber used is carefully sorted and chosen by specialised life-long cabinetmakers, who proudly uphold proud traditions.
