Designed by Antonio Citterio for Vitra, the Grand Relax packs a lot of clever engineering into a compact, understated armchair design. As the user sits down, a concealed integrated mechanism absorbs the weight and seamlessly moves the chair into a reclined position.
The sitter can adjust this angle of recline via a control knob, and the backrest can be locked at any angle. The chair is mounted on an elegant four-star base, allowing it to be rotated 360°.
The Grand Relax was developed with the materials in mind, as Citterio desired the cushions to have a 'lived-in' look. Therefore, he selected particularly soft cushions that give each armchair an individual, relaxed appearance – especially with leather covers, which acquire an appealing patina with visible creases over time.
