Designed by Jean Prouve, 1953

The slender, elegantly splayed metal legs of the Compas Direction desk by Jean Prouvé call to mind the hinged arms of a compass 'le compas' in French. Their design is based on engineering principles that typify the structural approach of the French designer and engineer. Paired with the oiled solid wood table tops, they form a richly contrasting mix of materials in the home office.

Materials:
Table top: solid wood with oiled finish; natural/ 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.
