The compass-shaped line is used by French designer Jean Prouvé in his furniture concepts, in particular for the so-called “Compas” desks created from 1953. This principle of a tapered base in folded metal sheet, with a triangular section, welded to a tube spacer, is the last type of structure applied to Jean Prouvé's furniture. The frame is made of thick metal with two folds, so three sides, which allows this fineness of the frames.
