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. The tobacco fabric has a red frame; the black fabric has a matching black frame. One of Prouvé’s few designs that he used in his own home, the Cité Armchair is a compelling lounge option for residential and commercial spaces. Made in Germany.
