Cité armchair is one of Prouvé's early masterpieces, designed for a competition for furnishing the halls of residence at Nancy's cité universitaire. Prouvé himself used this armchair with its dynamic appearance, its characteristic coated sheet steel rockers and broad leather arm support straps in the living room of his house. The base/frame is made of moulded sheet steel. The seat and back is in a single piece of fabric or leather with a polyurethane foam headrest cushion. The armrests are made of natural leather straps.
