Niko Kralj: Mosquito Molded Plywood Chair by Rex Kralj, Slovenia. Designed by the Slovenian Architect & Industrial Designer in 1953, the Fifties-era Mosquito Chair got its name from thin tapering legs and mosquito wings shaped seating surface. On top of its mid-century-inspired frame, the designer gave this stylish accent- or dining chair a comfortable oval back for a seat that's extra inviting. Five available colors compliment any space: white, black, oak (natural, bleached), walnut seat with beechwood legs, walnut seat with walnut legs. MOSQUITO is much more than a simple seat: it is a piece of mid-century furniture that made design history. This is the original Mosquito as issued by Rex Kralj and manufactured by Rex Kralj in Slovenia. Complete your home with this versatile design chair.
Mosquito chair gives a light and elegant impression. Its unique construction of mounting the chair legs to the seat is patent protected. The seating surface is cut in the middle and obliquely raised outwards. Because of thin tapering chair legs and mosquito wings shaped sitting surface, it reminds us of a mosquito. And that is how it got its name.
