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. His Nagasaki chair is one 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.
