Description

Details

Designed in 2012 by Antonio Citterio, the Grand Repos Chair, manufactured by Vitra, offers the ultimate in seating comfort.

With generous padding, inviting armrests and a high back, the Grand Repos armchair fulfils almost all demands with respect to comfortable, relaxing seating. Featuring biomechanical adjustment options, the chair adjusts to the sitter’s position and weight to offer exceptional support and can be locked in any desired position.

Developed in Switzerland by Vitra in collaboration with Italian designer and architect, Antonio Citterio in 2012, the Grand Repos combines timeless elegance with unsurpassed comfort. After years of experience creating dynamic seating for home and workspace, Citterio applies his expertise to the private living area to award the space with comfort and sculptural design.

Upholstered in comforting ‘Cosy Fabric’ by Vitra, the 80% wool cover allows a classic and inviting finish, while the muted grey hue allows the iconic piece to harmonize with an array of interiors.

Antonio Citterio

Italian furniture and industrial designer Antonio Citterio was born in Meda in 1950 and today lives and works in Milan. Citterio graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milan and from 1972 he opened his own studio, focusing mainly on industrial design.

 

Citterio has worked for leading manufacturers Vitra, Flexform, Flos, Iittala, Kartell and Arclinea, including his ongoing role as art director for both the B&B Italia and Maxalto brands, as well as being the architect behind the group's retail showrooms around the world. In 1999, Antonio Citterio and Partners was founded by Citterio and Patricia Viel, a multidisciplinary practice for architectural design, industrial design and graphics.

 

In 2004, Citterio and Partners completed the inaugural Bulgari Hotel in Milan, the first of a chain of luxury hotels known as the Bulgari Hotels and Resorts. This was followed in 2006 by the Bulgari Resort in Bali, and in 2007 by the Bulgari restaurant and cafè opened in Tokyo's Ginza district. Also in 2007, Citterio was named Royal Designer for Industry by the London-based Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce in London.
