With the Citizen Lowback Armchair the legendary German industrial designer has deconstructed the form and our expectations of the humble lounge chair and reworked it for the 21st Century. The seat panel is suspended on three cables, enabling the user to experience a mild swinging action, while the tubular steel frame allows for movement in a number of directions. Upholstered in premium Credo fabric, the Citizen range sees the innovative and cutting-edge aesthetic of the piece matched by the high-quality finish that one would expect of Vitra. A highback rendition of the Citizen is also available.
