Pierre Chapo, dining table model T35C, solid elmwood, France, 1960s
Very well-crafted dining table in wonderful original condition. The table shows outstanding craftsmanship of Pierre Chapo who is known for his high-quality pieces in elm wood. One of his traits is the dynamic shape of the base. Also here four wooden slats are arranged together to lift the rectangular tabletop up.
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'Hôpital. 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 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.
