This iconic dining set is an original creation by Mathieu Matégot, dating back to the 1950s. The table, along with the two armchairs and four chairs, is crafted from white lacquered metal. The meticulous handling of the raw material showcases the artist's ingenuity. Matégot's intricate intertwining patterns and curves add a touch of sophistication to each piece in the set, epitomising a perfect blend of elegance and the whimsical flair typical of the post-war era. These pieces have undergone a complete restoration in our workshop, with the chair cushions reupholstered in a bronze-colored Pierre Frey fabric suitable both for indoor and outdoor.

Mathieu Matégot (1910-2001), a renowned Franco-Hungarian designer known for his unique creations, played a central role in the post-war artistic landscape in France. His innovative use of perforated metal, discovered during his captivity in Germany and patented under the evocative name "Rigitulle" in 1952, revolutionized furniture design. Blurring the lines between design and decoration, his pieces reflect a pursuit of functionality characterized by resourcefulness and ingenuity in form-finding. Now reissued, his creations remain design classics, epitomizing the playful elegance of the 1950s.
