Pierre Chapo, dining table model T14D, oak, France, design 1960s, later production.

This dining table is designed by the French designer Pierre Chapo. The rectangular tabletop with sloping edges, rests on a two-legged base. Strong and simplified design which clearly emerges the woods grain and natural look. With characteristic wood-joints as Chapo's trademark. Though Chapo's furniture are mainly executed in elm, he also produced furniture in oak. 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 226 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.
