DESIGNER

Hungarian designer and architect Mathieu Matégot was credited to be one of the most renowned French designers of the 1950s. He settled in France after graduating at Budapest's School of Art and Architecture. He returned from his volunteering in the French army in 1944 and begun to produce handcrafted furniture in Paris. Matégot utilized many organic forms and had incredibly light touch in his designs to portray a feeling of delight. He was the first to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal, a patented technique called Rigitulle. These revolutionary and innovative techniques he used in his designs resulted in a body of work that continues to inspire many modern designers to this day.
