Product description

Named after its wing-like seat, the Mosquito Chair is a genuine eyecatcher, an elegant piece with a touch of poetry.

This innovative design proved too demanding for 1950s manufacturing methods. But thanks to the recent efforts of Rex Kralj to bring this exemplary chair to life by using present-day machinery, design enthusiasts can now enjoy this fine example of innovative furniture.

The Mosquito chair comes in natural oak, natural walnut and several distinctive colours.

Material: oak or walnut plywood seat and backrest & solid wood frame.

Concept

In his quest to define comfort and beauty, Niko Kralj designed a double curved seat. However, it proved too complicated to produce the piece in wood. By coming up with the ingenious idea of splitting the seat into two parts he created a delicate winged design. With its gentle curves, this solution is now regarded as the most original of its kind.

The Mosquito family celebrates the original early-1950s design and comprises two pieces: the Mosquito Chair, with its sophisticated slotted backrest in plywood, and the Mosquito Barstool, with its pure expression of the mosquito wing shape.
