Description Designed in the 1960s and produced in solid elm and cognac leather, the s10 chair is one of the most elemental works in Chapo's oeuvre. The chair combines a complex assembly in Chapo’s signature "48x72" technique, with a straight forward, simple design, resulting in a timeless work.

This specific piece comes from a summer house in the South of Germany, where due to very light use it was preserved in an amazing condition.

About the designer:

Pierre Chapo, who was born in Paris on July 1927, initially was interested in becoming a professional painter. However after a chance meeting with a shipbuilder who introduced him to wood and woodcrafts, Chapo changed his focus and decided to study architectural studies at the prestigious École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. After graduating Chapo and his wife, the sculptor and painter Nicole Lormier, started to travel extensively through Scandinavia and Central America. Among the many places the couple visited was the home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright in Taliesin West. A visit that had a lasting influence on Chapo’s future work and designs.
