After the second world war, French designer Mathieu Matégot ( 1910 – 2001 ) set up a workshop for handcrafted furniture in Paris for designing furniture and household articles. He used quite innovative materials such as perforated metal and rattan to create his light weight, sculptural designs. Matégot ended his career as a furniture designer quite early ( 1959 ) and devoted himself to the design of tapestry.
Today some of his influential furniture designs are part of the collection at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris and the design collection at the Georges Pompidou Centre.
