Description

In 1944, Niels Otto Møller began his cabinetry company, where old craft traditions, like the hand-woven seat on the Model 55 Armchair (1951), are still used today. Danish cord seats are known for their durability – easily withstanding decades of frequent use – and the strength of this material made it a smart substitute for tires when rubber was in short supply during WWII. What’s amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on and the way that it’s woven provides lasting comfort. Thirty years after he founded his company, Niels Otto Møller began exporting his chairs to Japan, which remains one of its biggest markets due to the simplicity and quality of the design and craftsmanship. Møllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managaged by Niels’ son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. These chairs are authentic, fully licensed products of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. Made in Denmark.

  • With its distinctive arms, the Model 55 Armchair allows you to pull the chair close to a dining table, without the arms hitting the table.
  • The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord.
  • To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas.
  • Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand.
