Armchair with sled base

The Cité armchair from Vitra is a design by the French designer and constructor Jean Prouvé, originally created as part of a competition for the furniture of the student dormitory in the Cité Universitaire of Nancy.

The armchair is characterized by its extravagant steel sheet skid frame, which is both armrest and feet. The frame is covered with a leather belt, which relativizes the hardness of the material and provides a harmonious overall ensemble.

Cantilever lounge chair

Special comfort is provided by the free-swinging backrest, which allows easy rocking. In addition, it is Cité equipped with a neck cushion, so you can comfortably read, watch TV or just relax in the armchair. Standing alone in the reading corner or integrated into an existing seating area, the armchair invites you to relax.

The Vitra Cité armchair is available with leather or fabric cover in different colors.
