Pierre Chapo

French, 1927 - 1987
Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) was a French furniture designer and craftsman who was active in the mid-20th century. He is known for his minimalist and functional designs, which were inspired by traditional Japanese architecture and craft.
Chapo began his career as a craftsman, working as an apprentice to a carpenter in Paris in the 1940s. He later studied architecture and began designing furniture in the 1950s. Chapo's designs were characterized by their simple and functional forms, as well as their use of natural materials such as wood and leather.
One of Chapo's most famous designs is the T22 table, which he created in 1962. The T22 is a simple, rectangular table made from solid elm wood, with a distinctive butterfly-shaped joint at each corner. The table is an example of Chapo's commitment to simplicity and functionality, and has become an iconic design object.
Chapo's designs have been exhibited at museums and galleries around the world, and he is considered one of the most important French furniture designers of the 20th century. His work continues to be admired and collected by enthusiasts and collectors today.
