Although it is immediately evident that the Fauteuil Direction Pivotant hails from a different era, it appears in no way outdated or old-fashioned. This is due to the distinctive aesthetic of French designer, architect and engineer Jean Prouvé, who always placed an uncompromising focus on functional requirements.

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), architect, engineer and designer, was endeavored for using highly-developed technologies for metal processing to achieve innovative constructions and forms in his design and architecture work. He played a decisive part in developing construction techniques using light-weight prefabricated parts in architecture, making use, among other things, of insights from the airplane and automotive industry. In his Ateliers Jean Prouvé, the company he founded in 1947, he started not only producing light-weight components but also his own design drafts.

The voluminous seat and backrest cushions rest on a sleek frame made of tubular steel and bent sheet metal, while the wooden armrests lend the office chair a touch of familiar comfort. The swivel seat of Fauteuil Direction Pivotant is height adjustable, and the backward tilt mechanism can be adapted to the individual user's weight. These features are paired with the generous upholstery to ensure optimum comfort. Leather or fabric covers are available in many different colors, making it easy to find the ideal chair for any type of business workplace or home office.
