Chaise Lounge Reclining Chair
Vitra, imported from Germany

Jean Prouve Cite Armchair Vitra. The beautiful Cite Armchair (Le fauteuil Cite as Jean Prouve named it) is one of the icons of French mid 20th century modern furniture design. This classic lounge chair with its timeless modernist good looks stands as a testimony to the ingenuity of its French designer, Jean Prouve. This chaise is one of Jean Prouve's early masterpieces, it was designed in 1930. The Cite Armchair by Jean Prouve is a low slung utilitarian chaise lounge that appeals because of the clarity of its structure, strongly influenced by the formal language of Jean Prouve's architecture. Simply put, it embodies the essence of good design. Cite was created by Jean Prouve for Nancy s Cite University in Nancy France and was reissued by Vitra Germany from the original drawings. Designed by Jean Prouve in 1930, Prouve himself used the Cite armchair in the living room of his own house. The Cite lounge has the trademark Prouve rational-sculptural aesthetic courtesy of his formal engineering training. By sitting in this chair you are well on your way to discovering the sublime and sophisticated qualities that are unique to Prouve designs. Cite is characterized by its coated sheet steel rockers and broad leather arm support straps. Made by Vitra in Europe. Jean Prouve design can be found in the collections of the Vitra Design Museum, MoMA Design Collection, Design Museum, Musee des Beaux-Arts de Nancy, Victoria & Albert Museum as well as numerous public- and private collections.
