Born in Denmark in 1920, at the age of 17, Møller completed his training in the artisanship of Joinery and then enrolled at the Århus School of Design. In 1944, he founded the J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik A / S studio, and began to produce his own designs. Møller's work fully embodies the Danish love of wood materials and the pursuit of a minimalist design aesthetic; his chair is usually geometric, yet streamlined by the smooth curving details, so that anyone sitting on his chairs can directly feel the elegant details of fine craftsmanship. In the 1950s and 1960s, he opted to create furniture using precious teak and rosewood, which elevated the Møller chair to become a widely popular collector's’ favorite. The J.L. Mølles Møbelfabrik studio was awarded with the Dansk MobelIndustri's Furniture Prize in 1974 and 1981 for their steadfast dedication to quality and artistry.
