Matégot was the first person to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal; a pairing that particularly characterizes his work. Today, Matégot's designs are equally fit for purpose as when they were originally conceived and his legendary designs are both timeless and classic.

Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001) was a versatile, independent and self-taught Hungarian designer, architect and artist who spent most of his life in his beloved Paris, where he for the first time settled in 1931 after finishing his studies at Budapest's School of Art and Architecture. Mathieu Matégot is most known for this groundbreaking material and technique, which he named Rigitulle, where metal tubing is combined with perforated metal sheet. Like fabric, Rigitulle could be bent, folded and shaped to give the furniture he designed transparency, weightlessness and everlasting modernity.
