Details

The Compas Direction Desk (1953) is named for the way the powder-coated steel legs are shaped like the hinged arms of an architect’s compass, or “compas” in French. While slender in profile, the legs are strong and stable, which French designer Jean Prouvé achieved by drawing upon his expertise in engineering. The result is a durable, compact desk with an airy, architectural aesthetic. This classic desk is produced by Vitra, which worked closely with the Prouvé family to bring it back into production. Made in Poland.

Jean Prouvé

“Never design anything that cannot be made,” Jean Prouvé once said. His practical body of work ranged from letter openers to doorknobs, furniture to modularly constructed buildings. Prouvé always regarded himself as more of an engineer, or “constructor,” than a designer. He never designed for the sake of form alone, concentrating instead on the essence of materials, connections, and production.
