Included in the design collection of MoMA in 2011, Rex Lounge armchair is one of the most known pieces by Niko Kralj (1920-2013), the most celebrated designer in Slovenia and one of my favourites. Despite being an icon in his country, Niko Kralj never reached the level of recognition of other designers of his time. However Rex Kralj, the brand that reissued his creations, has done an extraordinary job in spreading the legacy of the designer and the new site is proof of that. Presenting the history and heritage of Niko Kralj, the site shows all the collection, including Rex folding furniture range, the sculptural Mosquito chair, the elegant Shell armchair and their latest reedition: CC stool, designed in 1954. A must visit!
"His forward-thinking inventions and an eye for useful, but stylish solutions put him on a pedestal. He has become one of the most renown legends of timeless and minimalistic design."
