Rare and detailed resource on this important French 20th century furniture designer. This is the best reference work on Matégot who established a workshop in Paris making furniture using a variety of materials such as steel tube, rattan, glass, formica, and perforated sheet metal, Matégot pioneered their use in domestic furniture after experience with these materials as a prisoner of war. The workshop made chairs, tables, sideboards, desks and various other objects; it was later moved to Casablanca, producing and distributing pieces in editions of 200. Matégot famously designed the three-legged "Nagasaki" chair in 1954 and the "Copacabana" armchair (1955).
