CITIZEN / LOUNGE CHAIR / VITRA /
2020
CITIZEN reinterprets the traditional lounge chair in an unconventional way. The chair’s structure and shape are defined by a framework in bent tubular steel, while a freely suspended seat cushion offers an entirely new seating experience. Hanging on just three steel cables from the tubular frame, the seat can move in all directions, creating a pleasant swinging movement that doesn’t really exist in chairs.
The combination between the tubular steel frame and upholstered elements gives CITIZEN its character. The frame defines the spatial structure of the lounge chair, the seat and backrest add volume and colour. All elements of the chair are exposed giving the design visual lightness and a sporty nonchalance.
CITIZEN is available in two versions: the eye-catching CITIZEN Highback offering an extra degree of comfort, and the less conspicuous CITIZEN Lowback, which can be used for conference situations and larger lounge areas.
