Description

Pierre Chapo, coffee table, model T22C, elm, France, circa 1972 This early edition eye-shaped cocktail table by the French designer Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) is made out of elm. It consists out of two arch-shaped tables and one oval middle. The table allows its owner to create an individual arrangement due to the fact that both tables can be placed apart or pushed together forming one tabletop. 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 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.
