T21, five legged Sfax table by Pierre Chapo.
Taken from page 71, “Pierre Chapo” – Magen H Gallery:
“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.”
