D80 Grand Repos Lounge Chair by Jean Prouvé for Tecta, 1980s

D80 Grand Repos Lounge Chair by Jean Prouvé for Tecta, 1980s - Jean Prouvé - Tecta

About

This Grand Repos lounge chair was designed in 1930 by Jean Prouvé, initially for his own use. It's an easy or lounge chair with a movable back that slides backward. The movement is assisted by a spring mechanism and the original was only produced in a handful of copies. At the beginning of the 1980s, Jean Prouvé worked with the German company Tecta on a variation of the initial design. The model was then produced and distributed in small numbers as the 'D80 Grand Repos' between 1983 and 1989. This example has been reupholstered with a fabric from Designers Guild that is similar to the original sailcloth chosen by Prouvé for the Cité armchair of 1933. The armrests and head-cushion are finished in black leather. The seat height measures 15-25 cm when the seat is at the deepest position.
