Description

The ‘Rex’ lounge chair by Slovenian Architect Niko Kralj is one of the most iconic Eastern European designs of the 20th century. This lauded armchair has admiring fans around the world and sits comfortably in the permanent collection of the MoMA and many other prominent design museums.

The Rex chair captivates with its elegant form and fluid folding mechanism. Ground-breaking plywood shaping techniques were developed to permit bending in two perpendicular directions. The result is a brilliant example of the timeless and highly functional furniture that defines Niko Kralj’s legacy.
