Lounge Chairs
Comfort, softness, and an inviting appearance – these are the classic characteristics of a lounge chair. But to be truly great, a chair must offer more than just the standard elements.

At Vitra we’ve combined engineering expertise with a deep knowledge of upholstery, colours and materials to offer you the perfect lounge chair, equally suited as a special standalone piece or as an attractive addition to your existing living room furnishings.

Nubia is a blended fabric with a very lively, natural appearance

Its fine substructure is interspersed with voluminous bouclé yarn, which gives the fabric depth and a soft, inviting touch. The varying combinations of yarns in natural tones yield either contrasting or calm colour compositions with a distinctly Mediterranean flair. Available for the upholstery of Grand Sofà, Mariposa, Soft Modular Sofa and Suita Sofa. Also available for the upholstery of Repos and Grand Repos, as well as for the soft loose cushions of Grand Relax, this bouclé weave is a voluptuous addition to the existing range of cover fabrics. Nubia is available in 6 colours.

The Making of a Great Lounge Chair

The Italian designer and architect Antonio Citterio has worked with Vitra for over 40 years. ‘Making a lounge chair at Vitra in the shadow of Charles and Ray Eames is something of a designer’s nightmare. You already have a masterpiece in the family, so creating a new design comes with a great responsibility’, acknowledged Citterio. Vitra Magazine pays the designer a visit in his Milan studio to talk about the city’s influence on his work, his personal workspace and his latest design — the Grand Relax lounge chair.

Olive leaf tanned leather

A tanning agent extracted from olive tree leaves – a waste product of the olive harvest – is used to produce the superior-grade Leather Premium F. The entire production process is carried out with as few chemicals as possible in order to minimise the impact on the environment.

This sustainable product retains the appealing look and pleasantly soft feel of Leather Premium. In addition to the eco-friendly tanning process, environmental impact is measurably reduced by sourcing the cowhides from selected regions (Switzerland, Denmark and southern Germany).
