“Pierre Chapo’s design for the S10, which was no doubt a reference to Le Corbusier’s LC2, was a big hit when presented to the public. It can be fully dismantled and beautifully combines the paradoxes of complex assembly and a sober, simple design.” (From Pierre Chapo, Magen Gallery, page 158).
Pierre Chapo’s design have been heavily influenced by works from from the Bauhaus period and designers like le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. By studying his pieces one thing clearly stands out: his focus on details, craftsmanship and the relatively bulky and rigid shapes used in his furniture.
Other works include the S11 Chair, the T22 Coffee Table and the R08 Sideboard: Pierre Chapo can be considered as one of the most recognized designers from the French Modernist period.
