Pierre Chapo, dining table ‘T21’ with four benches ‘S38A’, solid elm, France, 1960s

This table is in a wonderful, patinated condition and accompanied by four elegantly curved benches. The table as well as the benches are executed in solid elm. The shape of the base creates a very open look and makes this an object to make a space more interesting. With their curved forms the benches are a great fit for the round table. The perfectly made wood joints, also shown on the side of the tabletop are true Chapo trademarks. The round top beautifully exposed the grain of the elmwood, which gives this table a natural character.

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 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 elm wood as his preferred material.
