Industrial Flair for the Home Environment: Fauteuil Direction by Jean Prouvé


The lightweight construction of the Fauteuil Direction chair first designed by Jean Prouvé in 1951 features exquisite structural elements such as triangular back legs bent from steel to provide full support and oiled solid wood armrests mounted on a metal frame. 

Prouvé’s designs were well regarded for their solid engineering, comfort and industrial flair. The Fauteuil Direction chair embodies these characteristics by bringing the practicality of mechanized design elements into the warmth of the home environment. 

The Fauteuil Direction chair is well suited for a home office or can also be used as a comfortable dining chair. It features a powder-coated steel frame, available in a selection of different color options. The seat & backrest are covered in your choice of fabric or leather.
