Pierre Chapo, dining table, model 'T14D', elm, France, 1960s. Width: 224cm/7.4 ft

This table is an early edition, created according to the original craft methodology of Pierre Chapo. The rectangular tabletop with sloping edges rests on a two-legged base. Strong and simplified design that clearly shows the wood grains of the elm, which contribute to the table's natural appearance. With characteristic wood-joints as Chapo's trademark. It shows a subtle patina due to the use and age of this T14D over the previous years. This table is the large variation on this classic line of tables by Chapo, measuring 224 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. Societe 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.
