Jørgen Møller

Danish architect and designer Jørgen Møller sailing on a boat“To me form and function are the keywords – by in reverse order. Functionality is essential, and only once you’ve achieved this can you start evolving the form. Decorations have no function and this I strive towards the art of simplifying”

Jørgen Møller (born 1930) trained as a bricklayer, finishing his apprenticeship with silver medal in 1953. He worked for Arne Jacobsen from 1961 to 1967 and opened his own architect office in 1967.
