The latest collection in our series for iconic seating BIM content showcases the Cite Chair designed by Jean Prouvé.
A Little Bit of History
Jean Prouvé was born in Paris in 1901. He studied fine arts at Nancy and started working under a blacksmith before completing his training as a metal artisan. Opening his first workshop in Nancy in 1924 he was a forerunner for innovative metal work design, ranging from bottle openers to escalators. He started in wrought iron design but in later years favoured sheet metal work. Serving as a consulting engineer on many buildings, Prouvé was also associated with many committees and competition bodies that would ultimately leave a mark on architectural history.
Our Revit family has 12 types defined by four upholstery finishes and three frame materials. Created from native Revit geometry only, the model has three levels of detail to provide appropriate views at different scales. As with all of our seating families, the chair uses 2D geometry in plan view to facilitate a fast workflow when designing room layouts.
Andy for Context
We've updated Andy, our entourage family, for the Cite chair. Version 5.4 has specific types to be used for this collection to suit the chair height. He is also now reading His House in Nancy by Jean Prouvé.
