Compas Direction Desk by VitraJean 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.
Perfect for the modern minimalist with a space issue to solve, this desk provides a timeless elegance in this chaotic world we live in. The inviting, simple table top is sturdily fixed upon an architecturally sound base. The base features slim lines and interesting angles, making this desk blend perfectly into any compact, modern workspace.
The Vitra Home Collection is not an interior design system or a homogeneous product line which promotes a uniform style. Rather, Vitra considers the furnishing of one's home as a process of collage - a gradual assemblage of products and objects. Not to be confused with coincidental accumulation of things, this process is a conscious arrangement that grows and changes with regard to both content and style, according to the owner's individual preferences and circumstances.
