Pierre Chapo Set of Ten 'S11' Chairs in Cognac Leather

$29,700per set

About

Pierre Chapo, set of ten dining chairs, model S11, elm and leather, France, circa 1966. A set of ten 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. 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.
