*POA* Pierre Chapo Model "S10" Sahara chair, 1960s, France
*Price on application - please email email@example.com*
A 1960s model "S10", also known as a "Sahara" chair, by the leading French modernist designer of the period, Pierre Chapo, whose work is highly sought after today.
Produced in solid elm and highest quality saddle leather, the structure is held together by the tension of the leather seat on the frame. The chair features the "48x72" assembly technique which is present in many of Chapo's designs and whilst this shows complexity it contrasts with the simplistic overall design and a frame that can even be dismantled.
This piece is in very nice condition, the frames show only minor signs of wear and the leather has been entirely replaced with the highest quality Belgium hide by an expert leather craftsman. Despite being new leather it is full of character and wonderful colouring which will develop further over time, there are a couple of very slight hairline scratches on the leather in places if you look close enough which happens on natural leather, however, as soon as the chairs are used they will disappear and generally, the leather will quickly gain patina which will further enhance the chairs. We have had the 8 brass fittings remade that hold the backrest in place, we do have 6 originals we can supply with the chairs if you so wish.
