In 1944, cabinetmaker Niels Otto Mller founded J.L. Mllers Mbelfabrik in the center of rhus, Denmark, and began producing chairs. Business continued to expand, and in the late 1960s, sons Jens and Jrgen joined their fathers company. In 1974, Mllers began exporting to Japan, which remains one of the biggest markets for its chairs due to their simplicity and craftsmanship. The company has won many awards, including the Danish Furniture Prize in 1974 and 1981. My father never compromised on anything, says Jrgen, who now runs Mllers. When he designed a chair, he would find the materials and then design the furniture. Each design took him five years to complete. Mllers still embraces traditional components like handwoven seats made from one continuous piece of cord and frames crafted from wood selected from eco-friendly sources and carefully hand-finished. This is the authentic 77B Barstool (1959) by J.L. Mllers Mbelfabrik. Made in Denmark.
