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