Jean Prouve 1950 Compas desk

Prouve_compas
A design classic that’s practical and still in production today – the Jean Prouve Compas desk.

Designed back in 1950, Prouve based the desk around a set of compasses – the legs being reminiscent of a pair. They’re  actually made of profiled steel, with a tubular central crossbar and laminated wooden top to finis things off.

It’s style is in its simplicity – and if it ticks the boxes for you, the Compas is back in production by Vitra for £1,800.
