Compass Desk and Standard Chair by Jean Prouvé

While you can still get the modern Compass Desk produced by Vitra today, we particularly like this 1953 version with a set of Charlotte Perriand drawers, with a cast signature to each drawer: [Modele Charlotte Perriand, Brevete S.G.D.G.].

The desk is made of enameled steel, laminate over wood, plastic, beech plywood, vinyl, aluminum, rubber.

We have only seen a few of these. The red and black version came from a private collection in New York and was sold at the Wright Auction house.
