Cite Armchair is one of Prouve's early masterpieces with it's dynamic appearance, characteristic coated-sheet steel rockers and broad leather arm support straps. Designed for a competition to furnish the halls of residence at Nancy's Cite University, Prouve used this armchair in his own living room. The frame is available in a Cream, Red or Black finish with the choice of 3 fabrics, Beige, Black or Tobacco or Black leather.
