The Compas Direction is the new edition of a piece of furniture designed in 1953 by Jean Prouvé: back then the Frenchman was fully up to date with the desk, today the piece of furniture is updated by Vitra .

Together with fashion label G-Star, Vitra relaunched a collection of furniture by French designer and architect Jean Prouvé in 2011. The designs were presented at the Vitra campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany, and the collaboration resulted in nine mass-produced products, the RAW Edition. The contemporary interpretation of Prouvé's furniture classics was so well received that Vitra has incorporated some objects from them into its permanent collection - including the Compas Direction .

Originally designed in 1953, the Compas Direction is a true Prouvé classic: with its slender forms, smooth surfaces and asymmetrical legs, it is the epitome of good 1950s design. Just as important for that design era: the clear functional lines ensure that practical utility is not forgotten. These characteristics qualify the Compas Direction for modern living as well.

Vitra manufactures the revised Compas Direction from powder-coated steel and a solid top of oiled oak. The natural material contrasts excitingly with the basalt-colored base, giving Jean Prouvé's desk a striking but understated elegance.
