Manufacturer: Vitra

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 top gives Compas Direction an individual touch. With its compact dimensions, the desk 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 with oiled finish; natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut.

Base: Bent sheet steel, powder-coated finish (smooth).

Origin of wood: oak (Quercus robur) from Western Europe and/or Poland; American walnut (Juglans nigra) from the USA.

Dimensions: Width 1250mm x Depth 600mm x Height 730mm
