nagasaki stool

Design Mathieu Mategot, 1954
Perforated sheet metal, steel
Made in Denmark by Gubi

The Nagasaki stool was designed in 1954 and is still Mathieu Matégot's best-known piece. The chair was exhibited for the first time at the 1954 Salon des Artistes Décorateurs and, along with Arne Jacobsen's Ant Chair (1952), is one of only a few three-legged models. The stool, like the chair, is made of perforated sheet metal - Rigitulle, that characterize Matégot's work. The seat is curved and arched, similar to the form of a saddle and the overall effect is one of lightness. The highly graphic design construction is evocative of Le Corbusier's work for the Church at Ronchamp. Today, the chair is part of the permanent collection at the internationally renowned, privately owned Vitra Design Museum.

Kate, more than a month ago.
With its simplicity and clean lines it is very original and
especially unique. It is light weight yet sturdy and most
comfortable. I find myself looking at it as an art object
and this is my pleasure!
