A very nice and minimal B10 wardrobe with adjustable shelves, designed by Pierre Chapo and was made in his own atelier in France, 1960. The B10 is one of the more familiar designs that Chapo made, as this was a modular principle what he designed, many different versions were made. This cabinet has a fantastic honey colour and beautiful patina to it. There are no significant marks of usage. The wood is honey coloured and has a lovely grain. There are a lot of woodworking details such as the typical corners and the almost invisible grip handles along the entire cabinets doors, making them a part of the design and not lose aesthetically beauty. The beautiful, crafted corner connections are of course a trademark for the designs by Chapo which he used in many of his designs. A nice detail is that the left door is wider then the right, which gives it a nice and interesting look. The cabinet has 2 shelves on the inside which are adjustable in different heights and there is also a brass bar to hang cloths. Makes this wardrobe beautiful and functional at the same time.

 

The work of Chapo combines ancient woodworking skill and tradition with a contemporary approach. In designing his distinguished pieces, Solid oak, elm, teak and ash were mainly used. After graduating from the Parisian École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in architectural studies, he travelled through Scandinavia, Central America and the United States. After returning to the French capital, he opened his own gallery in 1958 on boulevard de l’Hôpital 14, where among other artists mainly his and Isamu Noguchi’s creations were on display. In 1960, he received a gold medal from the city of Paris as a token of appreciation for his contributions to the city.

 

The work by Pierre Chapo is parallel to the designs by Charlotte Perriand. Due to the increase of demand for those pieces, Pierre Chapo’s work is highly sought after as its similar in many ways. Pierre Chapo is for sure one of the best designers from French soil, clearly to be seen at his architectural designs and craftsmanship.
