Pierre Chapo, cabinet B10, solid elm, France, 1960s. 

This bookcase or high cabinet is designed by the French designer Pierre Chapo. It is a piece of furniture that is modular and therefore could be designed according to the clients own wishes. It could be a cabinet, a shelving unit, a commode or anything else. In this case it is a cabinet equipped with three shelves and one storage part with a door. Al shelves can be placed on desirable height. Executed in solid elmwood, characteristic for Chapo. Designed with high attention to detail, as seen in the trademark wood-joints and detailed cabinet door.

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 Minimalist tendencies of 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.
