Shell Armchair by Niko Kralj
Significant and enduring modern design classics.
Rex Kralj was founded by Niko Kralj in Slovenia in 1952 and has since become known for its significant contribution to 20th century industrial design. Krajl's work has been included in a design exhibition at Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and been part of the collection of Design museum Danmark in Copenhagen, among other high profile international exhibitions.
The Shell takes the well deserved place among the legendary works of art by Niko Kralj. The chair got its final shape in 1956 and soon became one of the most sought-after items. The basic idea was to use two equally formed plywood panels for the seat and backrest. Due to its minimalistic form, The Shell is extremely elegant, while maintaining its full ergonomics. Sitting in The Shell is comfortable and gives your spine a pleasant rest. It is a perfect combination of metal base and wooden shell. Because of its minimalistic design and ergonomic shape, The Shell Armchair easily finds its place at any home, office or public space.
