The Satellite lamp collection features a perforated and folded sheet metal shade in the shape of an oval, where the material contrasts elegantly with the organic floral inspiration. Initially available as a suspension lamp, it is now available as a large sculptural wall lamp.
Mathieu Matégot had the art of creating natural forms by using modern and at the time innovative materials such as pierced metal. He was the first to combine tubes and openwork metal sheets, a mixture that can be found in several of his designs.
Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001) was one of the most renowned French designers of the 1950s.
He studied at the Budapest School of Fine Arts. He then visited Italy and the United States and decided to settle in France. He began his career as a window dresser at Galeries Lafayette.
In 1933, he began designing furniture, notably using rattan and metal. However, in the context of the war, he decided to enlist but was taken prisoner. After the Liberation, he devoted himself to the creation of transparent metal objects and opened his own workshop in Paris and then in Casablanca.
He exhibited his work in 1952 at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs et d'Automne. He quickly became a worldwide success. He particularly influenced the world of design with his avant-garde approach to shapes and materials.
