Pierre Chapo, dining table model 'Aban T35D', solid elm, France, circa 1972
Pierre Chapo designed the dining table 'Aban T35D' circa in 1972. The rectangular tabletop shows rounded corners and sits on a dynamic base out of four wooden legs intertwined with each other. It gives the solid table a unique, airy expression. The well sized table has a thick top with a slightly angled edge, which is a refined detail. This design is well proportioned and the typical Chapo wood-joints are visible.
Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) was born in a family of craftsmen and trained as an architect in Paris. After spending many years traveling through South and North America he and his partner Nicole set up Société Chapo, an architectural research consultancy and interior design firm. In 1958 they opened their famous gallery at 14 Boulevard de l'Hopital. Chapo's work originated by means of special commissions that could later be adapted to universal needs. Chapo was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's balanced lines, Corbusier's research on proportions and the minimalist tendencies of Bauhaus. Société Chapo was a design workshop and gallery in one where Nicole presented ceramics, textiles and other design by the great designers of the day. The three principles that motivated Pierre Chapo were 'material, form, and function.' He measured his furniture by means of golden ratio and used elmwood as his preferred material.
