The furniture whisperer
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/24/2018
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
Jointly developed by Vitra and Antonio Citterio, the lounge chairs Repos and Grand Repos introduce a new level of comfort and flexibility to the home environment: with their generous padding, inviting armrests and high backrest, these elegant, swivel-based lounge chairs live up to their image of supreme comfort. The synchronised mechanism concealed beneath the upholstery provides weight-adjusted backrest resistance and enables the sitter to move from an upright position to a reclined angle for resting. The continuously adjustable mechanism can be locked in any position. This ensures great comfort and optimal spinal support across the entire range of movement. ‘The history of design is the history of people and their relationships. Ethical considerations and a sense of adventure give rise to shared ideas.’ Antonio Citterio Both Repos and Grand Repos are available with a base that is 5 cm higher than the standard version, making it particularly suited for lobbies and other public spaces.
