The Suita sofa system combines light and slender volumes with an industrial and technological aesthetic. The geometrically precise body and cushions seem to float above the sleek, bridge-like aluminum legs, which can be seen as a tribute to mid-century American design. The Suita sofa family consists of many individual components. These can be used as independent elements or freely combined to adapt to all kinds of interior environments and furnishing needs.
Suita is a collaborative creation between Vitra and Citterio, born in 1950, and serves to add a system including both sofas and chairs that all subtly combine Italian flair for lightness and elegant workmanship with Swiss industrial quality and precision. Suita takes the classic sofa and gives it a contemporary, lightweight, yet industrial and technical look. The geometrical, clear lines of the body and the soft-worked paddings seem to float on top of the bridge-like feet made of polished aluminum. With their rounded form, these feet can be considered to pay homage to American mid-century design.

Vitra Suita Chaise Longue Small Designed by:
- Antonio Citterio , 2010
Born in 1950 in Meda, Italy, Antonio Citterio opened his architecture office at the age of just 22. One of the most internationally sought-after designers, Citterio has worked for such renowned companies as Vitra, Flos, Kartell, and Iittala. The reason for the success of his design projects is that he likes to “tease” out an object’s dormant potential. He is on a constant search for true and authentic work and that he detests bad design. In 1987 and in 1994, Antonio Citterio received the Compasso d’Oro award.
Since 2006 he has been teaching architectural design at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In 2008, the Royal Society honored him for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce of London, which gave him the title of “Royal Designer for Industry.”
