Jean Prouvé
for Vitra 1930

The Cité armchair is an early masterpiece by the French designer and engineer Jean Prouvé. Originally designed to furnish the student residence halls at the Cité Universitaire in Nancy, Prouvé also used this comfortable, expansive armchair with powder-coated steel runners and leather belt armrests in the living room of his own home. Generous dimensions and inviting upholstery contribute to the great comfort of Cité.
