Mathieu Matégot book stand / side table, complete made of metal. Showed in the 1956 Artimeta – Creation Mategot Catalogue as model ‘Porte-Livers 73’. Quite heavy piece ( 5 kilo ), solid made but very light, transparant appearance. The satin black color makes it adapt in any ( midcentury modern ) space. Great restored condition.

During the fifties, Matégot designed a series of ( small ) metal furniture and household products for Dutch company Artimeta, all limited produced. After the second world war, Artimeta was one of the Dutch companies which became succesfull producing small metal furniture and lighting designs in a new, innovative European style. The style of Mategot was of great influence on the designs of Perriand, Pilastro and Tomado.
