pendants, wall lamps, ceiling lamps

design Mathieu Matégot, 1953

The Satellite lamp collection features a shade in perforated metal sheet, where the material contrasts with the organic floral inspiration. Initially available as a pendant, it is now available as a large sculptural wall/ceiling lamp

Mathieu Matégot's organic forms and lightness of touch create a sense of joy and the ground breaking and innovative techniques that he employed result in aesthetic and, above all, contemporary designs. Matégot was the first person to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal; a pairing that particularly characterizes his work. Many designers spend years developing their designs, simply to make them better and better. This was certainly not the case with Mathieu Matégot; he only devoted one decade to the design of furniture and interior accessories, yet these distinctive 1950's designs would later be considered iconic. Today, Matégot's designs are equally fit for purpose as when they were originally conceived and his legendary designs are both timeless and classic. The Nagasaki chair is once of few three-legged models and is still Matégot's best-known piece and is included in the permanent exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum.

Mathieu Matégot

Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001) is one of the most famous French designers of the 50s.

He studied at the School of Fine Arts in Budapest. He then visited Italy then the United States and decided to settle in France.

In 1933, he began designing furniture with the use of rattan and metal. However, as the war was raging he decided to enroll and was later taken prisoner. After the Liberation, he devoted himself to creating objects in transparent metal and opened his own studio in Paris and Casablanca.

He showed his work in 1952 at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. He rapidly became a global success. He particularly influenced the world of design with his avant-garde approach to forms and materials.
