History

Pierre Chapo discovered Alsatian architecture, the wood structures of the traditional half- timbered houses, and the tried and tested household furniture. The interior of a home was a vital space in wintertime, and the heart of the house was a large table, where family and friends gathered for meals and winter evenings. Struck by the traditional “Alsatian chair,” Pierre Chapo decided to modernize it. In 1972, he designed the S28 chair, keeping the basic characteristics of the “Alsatian chair” but ridding it of its decorative elements. The back is made of a single piece of wood, the seat in solid flat wood and the four legs point outwards. Each piece of wood was shaped with care and precision. The S28 is a modern chair that maintains the silhouette and comfort of the “Alsatian chair.”

À partir du début des années 1970, Pierre Chapo voyage régulièrement en Alsace. Dans un premier temps, il s’y rend en prospection, à la recherche de bois exceptionnels, et pour rencontrer des ébénistes qualifiés, puis, par la suite, pour rassembler les différents éditeurs autour du groupement d’intérêt économique appelé « L’Arbre ». C’est lors de cette période que la collaboration et les échanges, avec Seltz notamment, s’intensifient. Ainsi, Pierre Chapo multiplie les passages dans cette région de France reconnue pour la richesse du savoir-faire artisanal.

From the early 1970s, Pierre Chapo traveled regularly to Alsace. At first he was scouting for exceptional woods and looking to meet qualified cabinetmakers. Later he went there to unite various manufacturers around an economic interest grouping called “L’ A rbre.” His collaborations and business exchanges intensified during this period, notably with Seltz, with frequent visits to this region of France, renowned for the wealth of its craftsmanship and savoir faire.
