Niko Kralj (born 1920) is hailed in Slovenia as one of the pioneers of industrial design. He created one of the most striking icons of Slovenian material culture, which was long overlooked because of its apparent obviousness. Works by Kralj from 1952 to 1992 are presented in the exhibition, some of which still represent indispensible features of public and private space. Through their modernity Kralj\'s chairs have come to represent a key part of the Slovenian cultural identity.


Supported by: SKICA
The event is being held in English and German
