France, 1927 – 1987
Stunning large ‘Aban’ T35D dining table designed by Pierre Chapo and manufactured in his atelier, France 1972. The tables feet were conducted to lengthly research to develop the converging-lines. Before production was launched, the system had to be fully mastered and provide solutions to the architectural issues involved in assembling wood sections. T35 brought new results that allowed the converging legs to be adapted to the forms of the table. The T35 has a rectangular top and requires broad span, especially in this version which is 226 cm long. The legs need to be positioned at a steep angle; the sections of the base are long and spaced quite far a part. The base changes in relation to the size of the top, making the T35 an architectural challenge but eventually an architectural masterpiece. This is a very early example made in solid elm, in very good fully original condition. With the typical Chapo double connections visible on the front of the table top. The top is slightly bent from age but hardly has any damages or marks, gentily used and with stunning patina. Looks fantastic with the set of S45 chairs we have available in another listing. Pierre Chapo can be scaled next to designers as Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouve. His work has been highly sought after and collected because of the brilliant mind he had in cunstruction his furniture.
