Description

Mathieu Matégot’s best-known piece, this chair was first exhibited at the 1954 Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. Nagasaki finds the French designer working with his favorite perforated sheet metal—he called it “Rigitulle”—and features interesting details like the little stirrup that holds the seat and legs together. Both back and seat are curved and arched, similar to a saddle, and the graphic lines have even been compared to Le Corbusier’s pioneering work.

Brand

Gubi

Now led creatively by the couple’s son Jacob Gubi Olsen, Danish brand Gubi was originally founded in 1967 as a vehicle for the modernist furniture designs and textile catalog of husband-and-wife Gubi and Lisbeth Larson. Under Jacob’s watch, the company added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects. Alongside standouts from the 20th century, he has introduced a new generation of designers from companies such as GamFratesi, Space Copenhagen and OeO Studio.

“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.”
