Pierre Chapo, dining table model T21, elm, France, 1960s
This round dining table is designed by Pierre Chapo. The shape of the base creates a very dynamic look. The perfectly made solid wood joints, also shown on the side of the top with double connection are made of solid elmwood, are true Chapo trademark. The round top beautifully exposes the grain of the elmwood, giving 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'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 ideas 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.
