Mathieu Matégot 'Soumba' nesting tables in original condition
Designed by Mathieu Matégot, 1950s
The tables are executed in orange, black and yellow.
The metal table tops are textured and are supported by three metal legs.
Mounted on the end of the legs there are small brass feet.

Born and educated in Budapest, furniture and tapestry designer Mathieu Matégot 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, many of which evoke Abstract Expressionist paintings.
