The story of Møller & Rothe goes all the way back to 1936 in Sweden, where Thyge Rothe and Niels A. Møller founded the company – hence the name Møller & Rothe.
Back then Møller & Rothe was engaged in the trade of textiles, capsule machines and grain mills. The business evolved over time into selling art industry articles, then furniture and eventually lighting.
In 1993 Møller & Rothe started importing Italian lamps, which were sold in Denmark and later throughout Scandinavia, as well as several projects in England, Spain, Switzerland and Italy. Since then, the business has steadily grown to include several agencies such as Giopato & Coombes, Faustlight, ONE A, Delta Light, Lumina, Il Fanale, Moooi and others.
The Gelbjerg-Hansen family has been part of the company since 1944 and today Møller & Rothe is owned by CEO Jan Gelbjerg-Hansen.
