Mathieu Matégot Brass and Black Metal French Corner Shelf, circa 1950

About

Corner shelf designed by Mathieu Matégot. Manufactured by Ateliers Matégot (France) circa 1950. Lacquered perforated and enamelled metal with original paint and brass details. This metal shelf is designed by the designer Mathieu Matégot. It is a triangular shaped shelf made of lacquered perforated an enamelled metal with its original paint and brass details on the top and base. It has been manufactured on the Ateliers Matégot in France circa 1950s. It is in good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. This is a rare model that perfectly showcases the simple lines and sophisticated craftsmanship of the designs of Matégot. Mathieu Matégot (1910-2001) was a Hungarian and French designer and material artist. He was one of the most renowned French designers of the 1950s. Born and educated in Budapest, he 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, Matégot returned to producing tapestries.
