Mller Model 57 Armchair
In 1944, Niels Otto Mller founded J.L. Mllers Mbelfabrik in Denmark, a company that has received many awards, including the Danish Furniture Prize in 1974 and 1981. “My father never compromised on anything,” says Jrgen Henrik Mller. “When he designed a chair, he would find the materials and then design the furniture. Each design took him five years to complete.” Even today the company continues to use old craft traditions like handwoven seats, which, on the Model 57 Armchair (1959), are made from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord. To make their furniture frames, Mller hand-selects raw wood from environmentally friendly sources and never uses machines for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand. In 1974, Niels Otto Mller began exporting to Japan, which remains one of the biggest markets for his chairs due to their simplicity and craftsmanship. Mllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managed by Jrgen Henrik Mller. These chairs are authentic, fully licensed products of J.L. Mllers Mbelfabrik. Made in Denmark.
