Designed in 1930 by French furniture pioneer Jean Prouvé, the Vitra Cite armchair is a timeless, dynamic masterpiece.

Originally created for a competition to furnish the student residence halls at the Cité Universitaire in Nancy, the Cité armchair is one of Jean Prouvé's early classics. With distinctive runners made of powder-coated sheet steel and broad leather belts for armrests, Prouvé himself used the armchair in the living room of his own home due to its generous dimensions and inviting upholstery. Now upholstered in elegant Mello fabric for Vitra's Home Stories 2019 campaign, the fabric is produced using recycled cotton and breathes new life into this furniture icon.
