Jean Prouv̩ Cit̩ lounge chair by Vitra. New official authorized version by the Prouv̩ estate, produced by Vitra germany. Designed in 1931 by Jean Prouve. Brand new (mint in the box) chair made by Vitra in Europe. This chair is one of the classics in the history of furniture. The armchair Cite is one of Prouve's early furniture designs. The aesthetic quality of this dynamic looking chair, with distinctive runners made of painted sheet steel, has lost none of its freshness and inviting comfort over the years. Cite fits well in the domestic setting (where Prouve himself used it) but can also be used in waiting areas. Each Cite Armchair Relaxer comes with a neck-support cushion.
Designed for a competition to furnish the student residence halls at the Cit̩ Universitaire in Nancy, the Cit̩ armchair is one of Jean Prouv̩'s early masterpieces. With distinctive runners made of powder-coated sheet steel and broad leather belts for armrests, this dynamic looking armchair was used by the 'constructeur' Prouv̩ in the living room of his own home. Generous dimensions and inviting upholstery contribute to the great comfort of Cit̩.
The Cit̩ is a creation by French industrial designer Jean Prouv̩. Jean Prouv̩, who always considered himself a design engineer, was also the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique range of designs includes letter openers, door and window fittings, lamps and furniture and even prefabricated houses and modular construction systems; essentially, anything that can be designed and industrially manufactured.
