Dining Set - Danish Midcentury Teak table and 8 chairs by Niels Otto Moller

About

A superb midcentury Danish teak extending dining table and 8 x Model 75 chair dining set designed by Niels Otto Møller. Originally designed in the 1950s, this set was produced in the 1960s and owned from new by the same family. The set is in excellent vintage condition and has some point in its life been beautifully restored. The table has been French polished and the extending leaves show a good match to the rest of the table where in many cases the top is usually faded and the leaves darker. The dining table extends by the use of separate extending leaves from a compact 4 seat table to accommodate 6, with one leaf, or 8 with two – as shown in the images. The light steel grey linen upholstery is in excellent, virtually unmarked condition, being a later change to the original design which would have been produced with paper cord seating. Both the table and chairs are in mid stained, well figured teak with the chairs being marginally darker in colour than the table and showing only minor age related marks and patina. A very comfortable and adaptable set that is both stylish and impressively understated, benefiting as it does from Møllerr’s trademark eye for sculptural detail and proportion. Niels Otto Møller was born in 1920 and is recognised as one of the founding fathers of Danish midcentury and Mid-Century Modern design. Along with many of his contemporaries his craftsmanship stemmed from his cabinet making background which led him to establish his own production company, JL Møllers Møbelfabrik, in his hometown of Århus in 1944. Known for his careful selection of materials and use of traditional wood working methods he became a prolific midcentury designer. This allowed his company to rapidly expand and by the mid-1950s he was exporting to both Germany and the United States whilst also servicing the growing Scandinavian market. His style is instantly recognisable and features soft curves represented in sculptural forms in teak, rosewood, oak and walnut. As such his designs, and in particular the earlier examples of his work, are much sought after by collectors and interior designers where they justifiably command high prices. All his designs were produced by his own company and that still continues today with the company having been passed to his two sons Jorgen Henrik Møller and Jens Ole Møller after his death in 1982. Dimensions: Table: H 72cms x W 125, 175 or 225cms x D 125cms Chairs: H 75cm x W 47 x D 45 cms Seat height 45cms.
