Fauteuil Direction is a well designed chair in which you can sit comfortably at the table. It pays homage to Prouvé’s typical philosophy of focusing on design factors. The chair is perfect for the home office where, particularly in combination with the small desk Compas Direction, it creates an individual touch. Fauteuil Direction is also well suited as a dining chair, and looks great in elegant hotel lobbies, restaurants and bars. Available with a choice of seven fabric finishes, five frame colours and three wood finishes for the armrests.
