Pierre Chapo T14D Dining Table in Solid Elm, France 1970s


Designed in 1964 by Pierre Chapo the T14D has a deceivingly simple design. With this work Chapo who until the end of his career was heavily focused on balance and the golden ratio, delivered a table that was timeless as well as very modern. The use of the large pieces of solid Elm give the table a very calm, natural feeling and especially on this copy it has a wonderful grain and patina. 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.

Pierre Chapo who was born into a family of craftsmen in Paris, was greatly inspired by designers Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier, as well as the Bauhaus movement. His modernist designs were heavily focused on craftsmanship. His passion for wood can be seen in his seminal works like the S11 Chair, the T22 L’Oeil Coffee Table, the R08 Sideboard, R16 Sideboard and the T21 dining table.


In very good vintage condition. One leg has a black mark, most likely removable, the other leg has a scratch of around 7 cm’s. Top has some minor dimples.
