Citizen chair - low back

Konstantin Grcic | Vitra


Featuring a seat suspended by cables, the Citizen low back armchair offers a new way of sitting. The swivel chair is ideal for offices and public spaces, as it combines comfort and ease of adjustment with a stylish streamlined form.

Product Information
Likened to sitting on a large cushion, the Citizen chair can be adjusted by the sitter almost unconsciously. The seat permits a pleasant swinging movement, while the backrest is firmly attached to the steel frame. This dynamic user experience is complemented by the slender cantilever frame, which is mounted on a swivel base.

Designed by Konstantin Grcic for Vitra, the Citizen armchair is notably paired back, with an exposed metal frame and minimal yet optimal upholstery. It makes an honest and unpretentious statement, with a sporty flair.

The swivel lounge chair is available in highback and lowback versions, offering options suitable for many contracts environments such as public lounges and lobbies. The Citizen chairs can be ordered in a choice of fabrics and leathers, and with a neck pillow in matching or contrasting material.
