0.00

The T21D Dining table belongs to the best design Chapo has created. Although very sturdy the clever design of the legs, makes it elegant and pleasant to watch. The use of the big pieces of elm wood, that has a nice grain in this version, gives the table a very natural feeling. The visible joints of the wood at the side of the top, are a wonderful detail and very typical for the work of Pierre Chapo.

About the designer:

Pierre Chapo, who was born in Paris on July 1927, initially was interested in becoming a professional painter. However after a chance meeting with a shipbuilder who introduced him to wood and woodcrafts, Chapo changed his focus and decided to study architectural studies at the prestigious École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. After graduating Chapo and his wife, the sculptor and painter Nicole Lormier, started to travel extensively through Scandinavia and Central America. Among the many places the couple visited was the home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright in Taliesin West. A visit that had a lasting influence on Chapo’s future work and designs.
