With its intertwining base in gleaming brass and a shining glass tabletop, this 1960 occasional table by French design legend Mathieu Matégot signals a move away from his more playful style of the '50s.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
