Pierre Chapo, set of six dining chairs, model 'S11', elm, leather, France, 1960s
A set of six chairs in solid elmwood with cognac leather seating and back, designed by French designer Pierre Chapo. These chairs have a cubic design of solid elmwood with natural leather back and seating. The thick leather is patinated and contributes to the authentic look. This set of chairs was probably costume-made upon special wishes of the client, as the measurements are slightly different than other 'S11' dining chairs.
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.
