Niko Kralj: The Unknown Famous Designer
Niko Kralj is more, than a mere industrial designer. He did more, than just the well-known products. His legacy extends over the fields of theory, education and practice. When we gain access to it as a whole, it surprizes us; how much of his work we knew, but never knew, it was his. This surprise was at the core of our project. To represent Niko Kralj as a whole, it was nescessary to stray away from the usual, obvious representation of him and his work and find a different way of communicating his words and products. The book is not one about him, but of him, a reader of selected texts he wrote, organised in five chapters, five aspects of Niko Kralj. His drawings and plans were used as a source to develop an ilustration for each chapter, and used for the book's 5 different covers. As such, we gain an integrated representation of Niko Kralj, with all aspect equal, mutating in application, in all of the printed matter of his exhibition in the Musem of architecture and design.
