Pierre Chapo, set of 4 dining chairs, model S24, elm and woven rush seating, France, circa 1966

A set of 4 chairs in solid elmwood with woven rush seating and back. Designed by French designer Pierre Chapo in Paris. These chairs have a cubic design of solid elmwood with woven natural fiber seating. These chairs show absolutely stunning wood joints and were created as a result of the pioneering 48 x 72 assembly ratio.

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.
