Designed for a competition to furnish the student residence halls at the Cite Universitaire in Nancy, the Cite armchair is one of Jean Prouvé's early masterpieces. Prouvé himself used this dynamic looking armchair - with distinctive runners made of powder-coated sheet steel and broad leather belts for armrests - in the living room of his own home. Generous dimensions and inviting upholstery contribute to the great comfort of the Vitra Cite chair.
Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
