Compas Direction Desk is designed by Jean Prouvé for Vitra with top in solid wood with oiled finish in natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut, and base in bent sheet steel, powder-coated finish (smooth).
Jean Prouvé developed several versions of the Compas table around 1950, basing the design on the structural principles for which he is known. Common to all of them are the slender, elegantly splayed legs, which call to mind the hinged arms of a compass – ‘le compas’ in French.
The oiled solid wood table top gives Compas Direction an individual touch. With its compact dimensions, the desk is ideal for the contemporary, largely paperless home office.
