Dedal Wall Shelf by Mathieu Matégot, 1950s


With its strong lines, minimal materials, and amusing design, this wall shelf is iconic of the Hungarian and French designer Mathieu Matégot. The designer strived to create objects of beauty and imagination that were also functional. This particular creation, made from perforated steel, was utterly original at the time and felt far more modern than its 1950s counterparts. Now, the piece has a timeless and vintage appeal, amplified by its beautiful patina.
