Description

Combining traditional craftsmanship with a unique perspective on architectural design, this vintage Chapo S45 Chair in Elm wood was designed by French designer Pierre Chapo. One of his most sculptural creations, the design of the S45 chair (also known as the 'chlacc' chair) bears resemblance to the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris where its creator was born.

Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) can be considered as one of the most recognized designers from the French Modernist period. Born in Paris to a family of craftsmen, Chapo was initially interested in becoming a professional painter. However, after a chance meeting with a shipbuilder who introduced him to woodworking, Chapo changed his focus. He decided to study architectural studies at the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, graduating in 1958. Chapo was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's balanced lines, Corbusier's research on proportions and the Minimalist tendencies of Bauhaus. He measured his furniture by means of the golden ratio and used Elm wood as his preferred material.

Style: Mid-Century Modern (Of the Period)
Period: Circa 1970s
