1960 Chair – Rex Kralj

from 725.00

Maker: Rex Kralj
Designer: Niko Kralj | Slovenia
Year: 1960

In 1957 Niko Kralj embarked on a six-month advanced study training programme in Sweden. While there he immersed himself in Scandinavian design culture and worked in Olaf Pir’s design bureau. Three years later Krajl launched the now iconic 1960 chair.

The 1960 chair is obviously influenced by Niko Kralj’s time in Sweden. It is a true representative of the mid-century modern era. Clean lines, smooth curves and square edges combine a Scandinavian aesthetic with the utilitarian sensibility of Kralj’s native Slovenia.
