Floor lamp designed by Mathieu Matégot. Manufactured by Ateliers Matégot (France), circa 1950.

Lacquered metal structure with original paint, it has some traces of rust. The plant holder has been repainted some time ago.

In good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.

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.
