The 4455 chair was designed in 1955 by Niko Kralj. It is an elegant stackable chair that combines solid timber and plywood with a sleek metal frame. The design is a perfect example of Kralj's ability to capture the graciousness and essential nature of the materials.

Comfort, stack-ability, lightness of form and durability made the 4455 the chair of choice for socialist-era offices and public spaces. Today the chair still feels as fresh and contemporary as the day it was conceived, ready to be appreciated by a new audience.
