Jørgen Møller

DENMARK (1930)
Like Hans Wegner, Peter Karpf and Jørgen Gammelgaard, Jørgen Møller is a talented artist who worked for Arne Jacobsen early in his career. And like many of his fellow Danish designers, Møller is an architect. He opened his own office in 1967 and has had work published in Living Architecture, Arkitectur Denmark, Graphis and Mobilia.

Americans are most familiar with Møller’s designs for Georg Jensen Silversmiths. He has created watches, utensils and thermometers in stainless steel, anodized aluminum and other metals and synthetic materials for the company that originally manufactured silver products only. Georg Jensen has carried Møller’s Complet – a kitchen set including salad bowl, creamer, sugar bowl and salt and pepper mill – and his 345 Watch. He also designed an oil lamp for the Israel Museum and the molded wood Taburet M Stacking Stool. His work is included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
