Description

JUS print A3 – Rex Chair front view

Rex is the King. An icon of Slovenian design.

A design surplus conceived and designed in 1956 by the architect and designer Niko Kralj, who ranks among world-famous industrial design legends such as Charles and Ray Eames and Alvar Aalto. In those days, the Rex line was a symbol of domestic industrial design, and this was confirmed by numerous international awards and recognitions. As proof of excellence, the Rex armchair is included in the permanent collection of the MOMA Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and the Danish Design Museum (Designmuseum Danmark) and the Museumsquartier in Vienna, and in 1999 it was ranked second as a Slovenian product of the 20th century by the magazine Finance.

The size of the JUS print A3 – Rex Chair front view is A3, and it is packed in a hard cardboard sleeve. The frame is not included.

More about the JUS project?

The JUS project presents a series of graphics on the subject of famous Yugoslavia’s technical products in the period between the 1950s and 1990s.

Outstanding achievements in the field of design and technology are part of the forgotten cultural heritage of the former Yugoslavia. It is about modernist architecture and products of interesting quality placed in the time and space of that time. Original, accessible, and useful products were created as a result of domestic know-how. They were mainly intended for the majority population, i.e. i. the working class.

JUS is an art project that we named after the well-known abbreviation for the Yugoslav standard. Our idea is to get to know young authors, engineers, designers, and the entire public with the JUS project, with a unique attitude toward creation. At that time, the attitude towards innovation, design, and production was actually advanced and modern.

In an original and graphically sophisticated way, JUS represents the achievements of our half-past technical heritage, which marked the period of our childhood and growing up. Just who from our generation doesn’t remember Gorenje refrigerators, Tomos motorcycles, Bagat sewing machines, not to mention the legendary Fiček.

 

More about the authors of the JUS project

The authors behind the entire idea and JUS illustrations are Darko and Marko Miladinović. The Miladinović brothers, who have been working in the field of visual communications, design, and creation of new brands for more than 25 years, have combined their knowledge and love for retro design from the time of socialist Yugoslavia in the JUS project. Researching the forgotten and often discarded documentation of products and later illustrating selected items can only be driven by a great passion for design and retro-chic culture.
