Pierre Chapo, single bed model L03, solid elm, France, 1965

Excellent designed single bed with the characteristic wood connections of Pierre Chapo. The L03 is a (day)bed whose minimal design was a rarity at that time - all superfluous elements were left out. The only decorative elements are the constructive corners. The L03A is equipped with two additional drawers that offer plenty of storage space. An excellent piece by Pierre Chapo in wonderful aged elm.

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.
