Pierre Chapo, dressing table R05A, elm, 1960s

This exquisitely crafted table with drawers combines a simplified yet complex design combined with nifty, solid construction details that characterize Chapo's work. The joints on the corner of this cabinet form both essential technical as well as aesthetic features of this object. With multiple drawers in different sizes the front of this dressing table gets a striking look.

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 he 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'Hôpital. 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. Société 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.
