The Cité Armchair from Vitra is one of Jean Prouvé's early masterpieces, designed for a competition for furnishing the halls of residence at Nancy's cité universitaire.

Jean Prouvé himself used the Cité Armchairwith its dynamic appearance, its characteristic coated sheet steel rockers and broad leather arm support straps in the living room of his own home.

It comes with a frame in either Japanese red, black or cream with a complementary fabric colour.
