Important single-seat desk model No.800 designed by Jean Prouve (1901-1984) for Ateliers Jean Prouve in 1952. Rectangular wooden desk top, with book storage below rests on 4 bent sheet steel feet which support the top and a tubular frame where the seat is attached to. The seat and writing part are adjustable in height for different sized kids even an adult can sit on it when it’s on the highest position. Very nice floating desk from the Compass series, this is industrial design at its best. The designs by Jean Prouve were and are being copied / remade worldwide, tells enough about how important his way of making industrial design was. This desk is completely in original condition and it’s in a very nice used condition. This is a very rare collectible piece and a true must have for an Industrial design lover/collector.
