Copacabana Chair by Mathieu-Matégot, France, 1955

About

20th century vintage lounge chair by iconic french designer Mathieu Matégot named Copacabana composed of a curved tubular steel legs and structure. This particular edition is distinguishable through the rare design of the front feet. The seat and backrest have been handcrafted using high quality Italian leather and the frame has been left untouched in order to preserve the item's vintage historic beauty. Nevertheless it is possible to re-lacquer the frame as an additional request. France. Circa 1950's. About Mathieu Mategot (1910-2001) Born and educated in Budapest, furniture and tapestry designer Mathieu Mategot moved to France in the early 1930s, where he worked as a window dresser and women’s clothing designer. He learned metalworking techniques as a prisoner of war in the 1940s, and upon his release began designing furniture, pioneering many of what we now identify as midcentury design tropes, like metal-mounted rattan, steel tubing, and perforated sheet metal. By the 1970s, Mategot returned to producing tapestries, many of which evoke Abstract Expressionist paintings.
