Mathieu Matégot

Hungarian, 1910 - 2001
Mathieu Matégot was a Hungarian-French designer born in 1910 outside of Budapest. He graduated at Budapest’s School of Fine Arts in 1929 and after travelling to the US and Italy, he settled in Paris in 1931. Matégot worked as a window dresser for Folies Bergére and Galerie Lafayette stores. Just before World War II, Matégot began designing furniture. He was captured by the Germans as a member of the French resistance and sent to work in a German factory. He was released in 1944 and awarded French citizenship. Matégot established his Paris workshop for furniture where he used glass, Formica, metal, leather and textiles to design. He opened his second workshop in Casablanca a few years later. By 1959, Matégot retired from furniture design and focused on tapestry design until his death in 2001. Mathieu Mategot furniture remains popular today.
