Jean Prouve developed the Compas Direction Desk in 1953 for Vitra in his signature industrial style, and it remains one of his most seminal pieces of furniture on the market today. Taking inspiration from the humble school compass, he sought to bring together a mix of metal and wood to create a highly practical and efficient desk. Industrial but still elegant, the steel legs on this table carry a solid oak tabletop, featuring this desk in its full glory for your domestic use. The choice of three metal finishes and colours further helps to set this design apart from others within Vitra’s collections, offering more unique styling choices. Available in either a Japanese Red or perhaps a deep black or chocolate. Perfect for your home office, its sleek form inspires creativity and organisation for your home and fits into the minimalist design that many contemporary homes follow.
Working perfectly in tandem with another Prouve design classic, the Standard Chair, you can perfectly match these together to create the home office that you have always wanted. Its space and simplicity add to the silhouette of the design, putting influence on the areas that matter and standing out in your home. The oiled solid wood natural oak design further provides a simple yet effective way to work, with ample space to spread out and covered in sleek oil to keep the desk stain-free and naturally organic in colour. The elegant base is made from powder-coated moulded sheet steel, which has then been coerced and painted into the colour that you desire to have in your home.
Match Vitra’s Compas Direction Desk with their Standard Chair to replace the traditional office chair and add your own level of intricate design to your home, thanks to Jean Prouve’s impressive designs.
