Pierre Chapo Pair of Elm Centre Tables 'Rectangulaire Duo' T27A

About

Pierre Chapo, set of 2 centre and kitchen table T27A, elm, France, 1960s. These small kitchen or dining tables in solid elm by master woodworker Pierre Chapo is named 'Rectangulaire Duo' and is type T27A. The basic design and construction as well as the use of solid pine wood characterizes the work of Chapo. These tables are perfect to use as side or centre tables and despite it's size it can still host four people. Due age and use an absolute brilliant patina has formed on the top and base, which give the table an even more characteristic and vibrant appearance. The interesting base of the table is build with just four twisted legs to provide a stabile construction, a characteristic of almost all tables by Chapo. It gives the solid table a unique, airy expression. 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.
