Taking inspiration from the simple hinged arms of a pair of compasses, the Compas Direction Desk is at once both industrial and elegant, with the steel legs carrying upon them a solid wood table top.
Available in an extensive selection of colourways and wood finishes the Compas is ideal for a range of environments from the home office to the workplace, with its sleek form inspiring creativity and organisation. Timeless and aesthetically brilliant, the Compas is a true design icon.
Jean Prouve was born into an artistic family in Nancy, France. Prouve trained as a metalsmith before attending engineering school in Nancy, and his intimate knowledge of metal remained the foundation of his work and career.
After opening his own workshop in 1923, Prouve began producing modern metal furniture of his own design as well as collaborating with some of the best-known French designers of the day, including Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.
