Mathieu Matégot

Mathieu Matégot (1910 – 2001) was a Hungarian designer and architect. Matégot’s organic forms and lightness of touch create a sense of joy and the groundbreaking and innovative techniques that he applied resulted in unique aesthetics and furniture designs. He was the first person to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal; ritigulle, a technique he patented and also a pairing that particularly characterizes his work.
