Design by Antonio Citterio, 2011.
With its generous padding, inviting armrests and high back, the Grand Repos is an expressive wing chair, visually exuding the kind of comfort one expects from a large, swivel lounge chair. Yet the Grand Repos has modest dimensions, lending itself well for smaller spaces. With a concealed synchronized mechanism, the backrest and seat can be adjusted to a variety of opening angles — from a comfortable sitting position to a relaxing resting position. This transformation in the angle of the seat and back allows for supreme sitting comfort and optimum back support throughout the entire, smooth range of motion. The chair can also be locked in any position.
Available in a variety of fabrics and leathers with decorative contrast seams that give the chair a distinctly contemporary, artisan flair. The four-star base, made of die-cast aluminum, is available polished or powder-coated in Basic Dark or Soft Light. The neck cushion, filled with feathers, is included. Please select fabric or leather, base finish and glides for carpet or hard floors.
Swatch samples, if ordered, will not show contrast seam. Please refer to images for view of contrast seam.
Material(s): Aluminum, polyurethane foam, fabric or leather upholstery

Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).
Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.View other products from Vitra
