Pierre Chapo Pair of S28 Dining Chairs in Solid Elm

About

Pierre Chapo, 2 S28 dining chairs, elmwood, France, design 1972, manufactured 1972-1974. During his travels to Alsace, Chapo discovered the Alsatian architecture and got inspired to modernize the "Alsatian chair". This led to the S28 model, which still features the basic characteristics of the original folklore furniture, but ridding it of its decorative elements. The back is made of a single piece of wood. Angled feet that point outwards. Very well made in solid elmwood. Solid construction yet elegant due to the tapered legs. 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 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.
