Pierre Chapo "T21D" dining table $32,000>
Magen H Gallery

The T21 table epitomizes Chapo's research for new systems of joinery in which the material and the design would be the lead factors in achieving stability, durability, and aesthetical fulfillment. The design of the T21 table had to be studied very precisely: no miscalculations were possible and the proportions had to be finely tuned, for the goal was to combine a perfect angle of inclination between the legs and the top, but also to calculate the degree that each leg need to be shaped in relation to the top, where all the legs would be assembled together. Lodged like a bolt in the heart of the converging axis, a pentagonal piece of wood maintains the structure.
