Prouv Cit Armchair
Favored among collectors, the Cit Armchair (1930), with its low build and angled backrest, exhibits a certain static dynamism inherent to Jean Prouv’s work. A resilient fabric sling seat is stretched over the chair’s tubular steel frame to produce a hammock effect, following the contours and movement of the body for constant support. Distinctive sheet steel runners serve as the base, giving way to thick leather belt armrests that invite contact with their smooth tactility. One of Prouv’s few designs that he used in his own home, the Cit Armchair is a compelling lounge option for residential and commercial spaces. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany.
