Jean Prouvé developed the Compas table in various models in the 1950's by applying the construction principles that he is known for. All share elegantly splayed, narrow legs in metal, a formal reminder of a compass - in French, 'le compas' in a range of colours.
The oiled solid wood table tops (in a range of finishes) give the Vitra Compas Direction an individual touch and with its compact dimensions, the table is ideal for the contemporary, largely paperless, home office.
Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
