About the designer:

Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001) was a versatile, independent and self-taught Hungarian designer, architect and artist who spent most of his life in his beloved Paris, where he first settled in 1931 after studying at the School of Budapest in Budapest. Art and architecture. In 1939, Matégot volunteered for the French army, but was held as a prisoner in Germany until his escape in 1944. This wartime captivity was an important time for Matégot, as it was here that he was able to acquaint himself with the innovative material and technique, Rigitulle - which would later become his hallmark.

Mathieu Matégot is best known for this pioneering material and technique, which he called Rigitulle, where metal tubes are combined with perforated metal plates. Like fabric, Rigitulle could be bent, folded and shaped to give the furniture he designed transparency, weightlessness and eternal modernity. Mathieu Matégot even patented this material and teqnique and set up his own production so that he could use it in his design. Like many of his colleagues, Matégot traveled the world in search of inspiration, techniques and upon his return transformed these impressions into his own unique designs and interpretations. Whether industrial processes or aesthetics, he always collected and interpreted.

In the 1950s - and a decade and a half - devoted to designing furniture and interior accessories, he created a wide range of distinctive designs that are today considered iconic and contemporary. To ensure the quality of the production of his own designs, Matégot set up two of his own workshops - Société Mategot, one in Paris with up to twenty employees and a second in Casablanca, Morocco. Both produced in limited numbers for up to 400 items and continued until the early 1960s, when Matégot abruptly ceased production and began his work on tapestry, which he would continue for the rest of his career.
