Pierre Chapo, stool S11X, elm, cognac leather, France, circa 1966
The S11X stool by Pierre Chapo shows great craftsmanship. The two leather sheets are wrapped around the elm wood frame. Chapo designed the S11 chairs and the stools with a particular design of the corners. Here he left the wooden connections visible, creating a three-dimensional solution that highlights the corner.

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.
