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. Made by Vitra in 2020, in a limited version of British racing green leather with black frame and cognac leather armrests. The chair was never used but only exhibited in a museum setting. Marked with label at the bottom of the chair.
