Nearly 80 years old but its beauty is still fresh, the Citè armchair designed by Jean Prouve back in 1930 and produced by Vitra is an outstanding piece of furniture; born out of a logical mind that was not married to a specific aesthetic but to the knowledge of the materials and the use of evolving techniques.
A true modernizer, Prouve used bent metal sheet when no one did, and the detail of the leather strap as the armrest is innovative even nowadays.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
