Niko Kralj was born in this year. Even as a kid he showed great interest in acquiring new knowledge. His excellent grades in school and passion for design led him to the Faculty of Architecture, where he became a model student and a demonstrator and later on even one of the most respected professors. His forward-thinking inventions and an eye for useful, but stylish solutions put him on a pedestal. He has become one of the most renown legends of timeless and minimalistic design. In 1952 Kralj’s first Rex designs were born. From theoretical points to sketch, from sketch to analysis, arguments and improvements to prototypes, made in the carpenter shop. This accurate and very natural process that is present in nature for millions of years was his guideline in creating new designs.
