History: In 1944, Møller founded his own furniture production company, JL Møllers Møbelfabrik, in a tiny workshop in the center of his hometown. While overseeing traditional furniture production in his factory, Møller continued to design. The No. 1 Chair (1946) was the first result. For the rest of his life, Møller’s furniture designs would be produced by his own company. In 1981, JL Møllers Møbelfabrik was awarded the Dansk MøbelIndustri’s Furniture Prize, with special mention for its “ability to combine the best craft traditions with modern furniture manufacture. Niels Otto Møller designed and produced a formidable number of chairs and his brand became synonymous the world over with good Danish design.
