Fauteuil Direction

Jean Prouvé, 1951

Fauteuil Direction is a comfortable armchair especially suited for table seating. Its design exemplifies the constructive aesthetic for which Prouvé is so well known. The compact armchair is ideal for the home office – where it is particularly striking in combination with the Compas Direction desk – and as a comfortable dining chair. Outside the home, Fauteuil Direction cuts a fine figure in elegantly appointed lobbies, restaurants or waiting areas.
