This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Mathieu Mategot was born in Hungary in 1910.
At the conclusion of his studies at the school of architecture in Budapest, he designed sets for the National Theater, and decided to settle in France in 1931.  In France he designed sets for for theatrical performances, held jobs as a window dresser for the Lafayette Galleries and was involved as a fashion designer in Paris.  
In addition to all of the above, he continued his work in painting which led him to tapestry work. During World War II he served as a volunteer in the French Army, taken prisoner, and was set free in 1944.  After his return to Paris he set up a workshop for handcrafted furniture where he used many types of materials including glass, rattan, metal for the overall design of furniture which included chairs, tables, desks, etc.
During the 1950s and 1960s he was responsible for  creating a three legged chair known as the "Nagasaki," and the "cloaca," which was an armchair. 

Examples of his furniture work are now on display at the George Pompidu Centre, National Museum of Modern Art  industrial center, Beaubourg, Paris.  His furniture pieces now appear at many fine shops and are sold throughout the world.
During the 1960s he turned his attention to tapestry with his cartoons being woven in Aubusson, France.   
Mathieu Mategot  died in February 2001 at Angers, France.
