“Developing a new chair for Vitra in the wake of a masterpiece like the Eames Lounge Chair was a unique challenge." Antonio Citterio.
Antonio Citterio's Grand Repos armchair for Vitra follows the tradition of the classic lounge chair, but is developed one step further. The Italian designer and architect knows how to combine elegance with comfort. He has worked with Vitra regularly for around 25 years and during this time has created a variety of designs, including several pioneering office chairs. After many years of experience he has applied his expertise to the private living area, with Grand Repos as his premiere piece.
This new film for Vitra by Florian Böhm and narrated by Eckhart Nickel stars Grand Repos and explores the way our homes can shape our lives.
