Pierre Chapo, dining table model T20A, elmwood, France, 1970s.
Grand dining table by the French designer Pierre Chapo, with great rounded edges. The table is designed in 1972 when Pierre Chapo revisited the idea of the T14 table. The pillar-leg base stayed in its place and he finished the table with long top that is straight at the sides and curved at the ends. The rounded angles bring this voluminous piece in balance. The elm shows a subtle patina due to the use and age of this T20 over the previous years. This table is one of the largest variation Chapo's tables, measuring 260 cm in width.
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.
