Vitra Compas Direction Desk
Designer: Jean Prouve, 1953
This is a genuine original Vitra piece.
Jean Prouve developed the Compas Table in various models around 1950, applying the construction priciples that he is known for. All share elegantly splayed, narrow legs in metal, a formal reminder of a compass - 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 Fauteil Direction.
Table Top: Solid wood oiled, natural oak, smoked oak or american walnut.
Base: Moulded sheet steel, powder coated
Dimensions: Height 730mm x Width 1250mm x Depth 600mm
