Pair French Mid-Century Modern Iron 'Copacabana' Chairs, by Mathieu Matégot 1950


Rare pair of French Mid-Century Modern 'Copacabana' Chairs by Mathieu Matégot. These lounge chairs/armchairs are rich fantasy creations with their sweeping curved rear legs and transparent back supports reflecting both a poetic and modern spirit. Matégot was the last of France's lineage of great 20th ironworkers (Brandt, Subes, Poillerat). What is amazing about these chairs is how much beauty they convey with seemingly such little effort. Circular black leather cushions are included. Literature Patrick Favardin, Les Decorateurs des Annees 50, Editions Norma, Paris, 2002, p.42. Philippe Jousse et Caroline Mondineu, Mathieu Matégot, ed. Jousse Entreprise, Paris, 2003.
