The story of the Rex furniture collection begins in the 1950s with the Rex foldable chair. Its design incorporates innovation, functionality and beauty. Niko Kralj stretched the boundaries of bent plywood while maintaining a focus on aesthetics, resulting in an indispensable series of furniture that has stood the test of time: the Rex Collection. The Rex Chair is a key product in this collection, merging ergonomics, comfort and uncompromised folding functionality in a lightweight piece.
Niko Kralj was born in 1920. Even as a kid he showed great interest in acquiring new knowledge. His excellent grades in school and passion for design led him to the Faculty of Architecture, where he became a model student and a demonstrator and later on even one of the most respected professors. 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.
