Pierre Chapo, large dining table T20B and set of twelve dining chairs S11, elm, leather, France, 1960s
The rectangular tabletop of the T20B with sloping edges, rests on a two-legged base. Strong and simplified design which clearly emphasizes the expression of the grain and the natural look. With characteristic wood-joints as Chapo's trademark. With a length of 3 meters the table has an impressive size and its admirable patina contributes to the expressiveness of the design.
A set of twelve 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 naturel leather back and seating. They show absolutely stunning wood joints and were created as a result of the pioneering 48 x 72 assembly ratio. The thick saddle leather is lightly patinated during use and age and shows interesting stitching. Please note that the patina within the set of chairs might differ and that the shown chairs function as an example.
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'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 the ideas of 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.
