Mathieu Matégot's organic forms and lightness of touch create a sense of joy and the ground breaking and innovative techniques that he applied resulted in unique aesthetics and, above all, contemporary designs. Today, Matégot's designs are equally fit for the purpose as when they were originally conceived, and his legendary designs are both timeless and classic.
Like many of his peers Mategot travelled the world in search of inspiration, techniques and upon return transformed these impressions into his own unique designs and interpretations. Wether it was industrial processes or aesthetics, he always collected and interpreted - he even patented and set up his own production to apply these new technologies into his designs, He was a true innovator of his time!
From the spring of 2014 Gubi's collection of original Mategot designs will include: The Nagasaki Chair & Stool, The Dedal Shelf, The Mategot Coatrack and the Kangourou Table plus four new pieces; The Mategot Trolley, The Demon Shelf and the Copacabana chair and tables.
It will first be presented to the press and market at IMM Cologne, at Maison & Object Paris and also at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair January-February 2014. The new designs will be available on gubi.com and at selected retailers in Autumn of 2014. A limited selection is products will be available for photo shoots on request.
