Vitra Fauteuil Direction Chair by Jean Prouve
Jean Prouvé Fauteuil Direction chair by Vitra. New official authorized version by the Prouvé estate, produced by Vitra Germany. Designed in 1938/39 by Jean Prouvé. Fauteuil Direction is one of the classics in the history of modernist furniture design. The aesthetic quality of this modern looking chair, with distinctive armrests made of solid wood, has lost none of its freshness and inviting comfort over the years. Fauteuil Direction fits well in the domestic setting (where Prouvé himself used it) but can also be used in waiting areas.
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.
Vitra's Fauteuil Direction is a creation by French industrial designer Jean Prouvé. Jean Prouvé, who always considered himself a design engineer, was also the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique range of designs includes letter openers, door and window fittings, lamps and furniture – and even prefabricated houses and modular construction systems; essentially, anything that can be designed and industrially manufactured.
