Since 1944, J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik has produced chairs of outstandingly high quality in timeless designs. The chairs are sold over the whole world and the Møller chair has become the epitome of Danish Design.
What is it that makes J.L. Møller chairs so unique?

Production without assembly line
Chairs from J.L. Møller are assembled using the old craft traditions.
As far as possible no modern technology or assembly lines are used. Each employee is a specialist in specific work processes for creating the chair, giving it a unique quality and elegance.
At J.L. Møller tenons, mortices and dowels are all glued by hand.
This is the only way to ensure that all surfaces have been treated. Dowels are dried down to 5% humidity (in the other components this is 8%), so that when the dowel contacts the glue it expands and is immoveably fixed in position.
The chair’s tenon construction also strengthens the chair. Cramping is performed with compressed air in a hydraulic press.
Polishing machines are not used for the final polish, as they treat all wood alike.
Instead the chairs are polished by hand. This is J.L. Møller's policy in all production phases.
If the latest technology does not give a better and more satisfactory result than the well-known
craft methods, it is quite simply not employed in the factory.

The result
When the chairs leave the factory they are dispatched FULLY ASSEMBLED.
Not as knock-down furniture in a box.
This costs more in transport, but at J.L. Møller our view is that what can be assembled
by the recipient can also be accidentally disassembled by the consumer.
It is literally impossible to pull a Møller chair apart.
Before packing, our chairs undergo a final inspection, where everything is checked one last time
before they are packed and sent off.
