The furniture whisperer
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
The upholstered seat and backrest of the large, swivel chair accommodate movement and invite users to relax in different positions. Antonio Citterio has now worked with Vitra regularly for nearly 25 years and developed numerous objects for around the office. With the Grand Repos – and the smaller version without wings Repos –, Citterio transferred expertise in the field of office chair technology to the private living world for the first time. Thanks to its bio-mechanical construction, the lounge chair adapts to any seated position. The angle of the seat and back follow synchronously the fluid movement of the user, the chair's invisible mechanism adjusts to the user's body weight and can be locked in any position. Ergonomics, movement and relaxation unite in the Grand Repos for unwinding at home.
