Rex Chair


The collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City

The “REX” Chair is a Slovenian wood chair design that is included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art MOMA in New York City and was designed by Slovene architect and designer Niko Kralj (1920-2013) in 1952. In 2012, it was given a permanent place in Designmuseum, Denmark, the largest museum of design in Scandinavia. It became a cult object for design lovers around the globe with its calm contemporary elegance and a feeling of floating.

It is the most internationally notable Slovenian design item and in 2004, at the 50 years anniversary of its development there was at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana an exhibition devoted to the REX chair. REX chair was ranked at the second place as the Slovenian product of 20th century according to the ″Finance″ newspaper in 1999.

Part of Rex Kralj’s foldable furniture collection dating back to the 1950s, the Rex Chair is much more than a folding chair. This work of art combines unique design and great folding unctionality, making it a classic piece of furniture fit for every household. Who said convenient couldn’t be stylish?
