Description

Despite its rich history – inspired by a legendary architect and founded in 1952 – Rex Kralj’s timeless wooden furniture has a modern appeal, owing to its simplicity, emphasis on functionality and accomplished craftsmanship. The Shell Lounge Chair was first designed in 1956 and fast became an iconic piece of furniture, thanks to its two bent plywood panels that form a comfortable, curved backrest and seat. Sitting on a sturdy, simple metal frame, it's got a mid-century meets industrial aesthetic – an iconic choice for your dining room or home office.

Story

Founded by Niko Kralj in 1952, Slovenian furniture brand Rex Kralj was first launched as a homage to the designs of legendary Slovenian architect Rex Kralj – bringing his iconic style into homes, and keeping his legacy alive. Each piece is heavily influenced by Rex’s most infamous designs, like the Rex chair – an iconic piece of 20th century industrial design and a permanent feature in the MoMA in NYC. And Niko himself is just as iconic, having received the Slovenian award for culture in recognition of his achievements in architecture and design. Based on the past, but designed for the future – his timeless, simple furniture is created with an emphasis on craftsmanship and attention to detail. It results in a subtle mid-century meets industrial aesthetic, thanks to a heavy reliance on natural wood, minimal silhouettes and functional features, like chairs that fold away for easy storage.
