Niko Kralj was the definitive mid-century designer of Slovenia. He worked with new post-war technology to create a series of cutting-edge designs which earned widespread praise from design leaders and institutions. Since 2018, the Rex Kralj Lounge Chair has been part of the permanent MoMa collection. His designs have been recently rediscovered by a new audience, this year the company has endeavoured to propel this renewed enthusiasm for Niko Kralj's work even further.
The brand's new offering includes dining, lounge, storage and office furniture in the traditional materials used by the company; oak, beech, walnut and plywood. Each piece is available with a new range of customised finish options and an upholstery selection in fabric or leather. New finish options are added to existing designs to add a deluxe element.
The extensive range of new designs ensures the brand remains relevant to contemporary interiors. Where previously Rex Kralj only offered a small dining table solution, now there are two impressive designs which cater to a large space. These are elegant adaptations of two successful chair designs which the company has produced in the 1950s, the CC Stool and the Mosquito Chair.
Similar developments have been made with another existing design, the Shell Chair. This has been translated into a design which Good Form directors Dan and Emma Eagle hold in high regard. The newly introduced Square Chair beautifully combines an organic form with a linear, steel tube frame and is designed to suit a range of interior spaces.
The new, thoughtful designs and existing range of classics offer an intelligent, skilfully crafted approach to interiors. These are available to view on the Good Form website and new examples will be displayed in store from July.

They offer an enduring connection to what is natural, a material to demonstrate creativity and a vessel to share.READ MORE
