Prouvé Compas Direction Desk

Prouvé developed several versions of the Compas table around 1950, basing the design on the structural principles for which he is known. Common to all of them are the slender, elegantly splayed legs, which call to mind the hinged arms of a compass – ‘le compas’ in French. The oiled solid wood table top gives Compas Direction an individual touch. With its compact dimensions, the desk is ideal for the modern home office.
