Known for his groundbreaking and innovative pairing of metal tubing and perforated metal sheet, midcentury designer Mathieu Matégot's wall shelf plays off the metal’s opposing qualities of hardness and transparency.

The graphic shape almost seems to anticipate combining one or more units in ever more imaginative wall groupings.

“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.”
