Limited Edition Grand Repos Lounge Chair – Nobile Velour Fabric
Jointly developed by Vitra and Antonio Citterio, the Grand Repos lounge chair introduces a new level of comfort and flexibility to the home environment: with its generous padding, inviting armrests and high backrest, this elegant swivel-based lounge chair imparts an image of supreme comfort. For the Christmas season, Vitra have launched a Limited Edition Grand Repos Lounge Chair with the velour fabric ‘Nobile’.
‘Developing a new chair for Vitra in the wake of a masterpiece like the Eames Lounge Chair was a unique challenge’, explains Antonio Citterio, referring to his design of Grand Repos. The large, comfortable lounge chair by the Italian designer marks an important step in the evolution of this typology and sets new standards. Like a considerate host or trusted companion, Grand Repos meets every expectation for comfort.
Antonio Citterio has regularly worked with Vitra for nearly 25 years and created numerous products for the office. In developing Grand Repos, Citterio applied his technical expertise in office seating to the realm of private living. Thanks to the lounge chair’s biomechanical adjustment options, it allows a wide variety of sitting positions. The angle of the seat and back fluidly adapt to the sitter’s movements, while the chair’s invisible synchronised mechanism also adjusts automatically to the user’s weight and can be locked in any position. Ergonomics, movement and relaxation are united in Grand Repos, making it a perfect spot to unwind at home.
Vitra is introducing Grand Repos with covers in the new Nobile fabric – an extremely soft velour – for a limited time only. Nobile gives Grand Repos a classic aura, recalling the sophistication of grand hotel lobbies and traditional clubs in Paris, London or Vienna. Thanks to its elegant appearance, Nobile can be effortlessly paired with other materials. The velour fabric combines a luxurious shimmering lustre with the warm tactile qualities of wool. The gracefully rounded contours of Grand Repos show off Nobile to best advantage.
The classic colours ivy, bordeaux and dark blue harmonise with many other shades and enhance a wide variety of interiors.
The limited edition is available from 1 November to 31 January 2017 and can be purchased online or instore.
