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 Armchair with 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 a selection of colours with leather or fabric upholstery to really make it your own.

Designed by

Jean Prouve

Jean Prouvé is regarded as one of the most influential furniture designers of the early modern design movement. Specialising in the use of steel and aluminium in his designs, he is said to have considered himself more as an engineer than a modern designer. Prouvé was a pioneer of his time concentrating purely on efficiency and the materials being used rather than just the aesthetic appeal of products. His iconic Trapeze Dining Table, manufactured by Vitra is one of his many timeless designs with its alluring appeal and versatility - flexible to apply to any design style.
