Matégot Nagasaki Chair
Mathieu Matégot’s organic forms and lightness of touch in his designs create a sense of joy. At the same time he used groundbreaking and innovative techniques. This resulted in complete unique aesthetic and, above all, contemporary designs. Matégot was the first person to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal – “rigitulle”, a pairing that characterises his work.
The Nagasaki Chair (1954) is one of few three-legged chairs and is still Matégot's best-known piece. It is included in the permanent exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum.
