Mathieu Matégot had a talent for creating natural forms using modern, innovative materials such as drilled metal. In fact, he was the first to combine tubes and perforated metal sheets, a combination that can be seen in many of his designs.
Unlike many designers who spend years perfecting their technique, Mathieu Matégot devoted just ten years to the creation of objects and furniture during the 1950s, leaving behind many landmark creations that are today the delight of collectors.

Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001) was one of the most renowned French designers of the 50s.
He studied at the Budapest School of Fine Arts. He then visited Italy and the United States, before settling in France. He began his career as a window dresser at Galeries Lafayette.
In 1933, he began designing furniture using rattan and metal. However, during 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, then in Casablanca.
In 1952, he exhibited his work at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs et d'Automne. He quickly achieved worldwide success. His avant-garde approach to shapes and materials has had a major influence on the world of design.
