Pierre Chapo, daybed with drawer model 'L03', France, circa 1965.
This daybed is designed by Pierre Chapo, circa 1965. The bed has storage underneath in the shape of a large drawer with wheels. The bed features the handcrafted joints that the woodworker Chapo is known for. The elm has patinated over time. With the furniture that is designed by Chapo, the patina can make the difference between a great and a truly unique piece. The patina adds depth, character and authenticity, which is why this bed in its current condition might be even more beautiful than at the time when it was made.
Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) was born in a family of craftsmen and trained as an architect in Paris. After spending many years traveling through south and North America him and his partner Nicole set up Société Chapo, an architectural research consultancy and interior design firm. In 1958 they opened their famous gallery at 14 Boulevard de l'Hopital. Chapo's work originated by means of special commissions that could later be adapted to universal needs. Chapo was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's balanced lines, Corbusier's research on proportions and Bauhaus. Societe Chapo was a design workshop and gallery in one where Nicole presented ceramics, textiles and other design by the great designers of the day. The three principles that motivated Pierre Chapo were 'material, form, and function.' He measured his furniture by means of golden ratio and used elmwood as his preferred material.
Please note that the mattress is not included with the piece.
