Pierre Chapo S10 “Sahara” Chair
Elm, rope, new leather
It’s not hard to see a few of Pierre Chapo’s sources of inspiration: Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, the Bauhaus. Before he and his wife Nicole created their atelier and gallery in 1958, they also traveled extensively in North and South America and absorbed ideas along the way. But Chapo’s work is unmistakable–sturdy yet sleek, simple but sophisticated.
The Sahara Chair is a deceptively simple design, a kind of design puzzle, built on the principle of the golden ratio.
The leather is new, so this beauty should hold up for many years to come.
