Rex Kralj


After the Second World War, traditional production methods gave way to modern inventions and led to a new era of furniture design. As a trained architect and an absolute pioneer in this field, Niko developed truly innovative pieces for the time and became one of the first ever industrial designers. It’s little wonder that fellow professionals are gradually recognising his work, which has been rewarded with permanent displays in design museums such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Designmuseum Denmark and The International Design Museum Munich.

Rex Kralj was founded in 2012. The idea for the company was sparked by the type of passion that grabs you when encountering a truly stunning design for the first time. Company founders Žiga Vrohvec and Tomaž Sešlar were inspired by the iconic Rex Chair, designed by the mid-twentieth- century architect and designer Niko Kralj.

The two founders were instantly drawn to his work and decided to establish their brand in homage, in both name and style, to Niko and his timeless designs. Rex Kralj is a contraction of Rex, Niko’s most famous design, and Kralj, the designers last name.
