Typical Matégot design made of perforated sheet steel

The present trolley was designed by the Hungarian designer Matthieu Matégot in the 1950s. Matégot enjoyed working with perforated metal sheets. He invented the so-called ‘Ritigulle’ technique, by which perforated sheet is transformed into a thin and flexible material. The famous ‘Baghdad’ lamp consists of this kind of material. Matégot’s designs are characterized by a lightness, transparency and elegance that make them so appealing.

The trolley measures 58 x 70 x 36 cm and is in good condition, showing some wear. The original typical red-yellow-black coloring has been painted over. The current version shows major wear marks.

Matthieu Matégot (1910-2001)
The Hungarian-French designer Mathieu Matégot studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Budapest in the 1920s. In 1931, he settled in France. In 1933, he began with the design of rattan furniture. After the Second World War, he opened a studio for crafted furniture design, first in Paris and then in Casablanca. His furniture is often characterized by clever, practical and amusing designs. Matégot was one of the pioneers in the processing of steel tubing and perforated metal sheet. In the early 1960s, Matégot devoted himself to the production of carpets. Some of them are on display in public buildings, including the National Library of Australia.
