The Vitra Grand Repos by Antonio Citterio opens a new dimension of comfortable seating. The Italian designer has often collaborated with Vitra, and over the decades has for all proven his expertise in the field of office chairs. For the ultimate home sitting experience Citterio has now used his knowledge of office chair design to create a lounge chair with an ingenious synchronous mechanism. The Vitra Grand Repos adapts to the user's weight via spring force which allows the continuous synchronous adjustment of the position be that in an upright or reclining position. Formally the Grand Repos with its high back and armrests is reminiscent of the very inviting classic wing chair; however, for Vitra Antonio Citterio has also advanced the design and with his Repos chair he has removed the backrest to create an even more reduced form of the elegant designer armchair. Both models are available on a rotating four foot base and are in a large range of leather and fabric versions. The optimal seating comfort is guaranteed with the matching Ottoman or Panchina.
The portfolio of Antonio Citterio has much more to offer than functional office furniture through which he has made such a name for both himself and Vitra. A trained architect Citterio founded his studio "Antonio Citterio and Partners" in 1999 and began to work on range of construction and interior design projects. In terms of design, the range of Citterio's work spans storage furniture, seating, fitness eq
