Designed by the legendary Jean Prouvé in 1953, the Compas Direction Desk from Vitra takes its shape from the hinged arms of a drawing compass.
The desk is a pairing of sleek metal legs with a capacious solid oak tabletop. The nearly 70-year-old design is a testament to Prouvé's timelessness, working as elegantly in a contemporary office as it did in a mid-century one.
Jean Prouvé was one of the twentieth century’s most influential designers, manufacturers, and educators. Playing a pivotal role in the development of mass-production techniques in post-war modernist Europe, his wide-ranging portfolio spans from prefabricated housing solutions to furniture for the office, classroom and home.
- Designed in 1953, informed by a drawing compass
