Compas Direction desk, 1953

Compas Direction desk by Jean Prouve for Vitra.

Jean Prouve developed the Compas Table in various models around 1950, applying the construction principles that he is known for. All share elegantly splayed, narrow legs in metal, a formal reminder of a compas - in French 'le compas'.

The oiled solid wood table tops give Compas Direction an individual touch. With its compact dimensions, the table is ideal for the contemporary, largely paperless, home office, where it cuts a fine figure, particularly in combination with the Fauteuil Direction chair.
