Dining chair Nagasaki, black frame / different colors

Regular price 499.00€

The Nagasaki chair is the most famous creation of French designer Mathieu Matégot since 1954. Nagasaki was once one of the few three-legged chairs and was exhibited for the first time alongside the similar classic Arne Jacobsen's Ant at the French designers' association Salon des Artistes Décorateurs.


The aesthetic chair is made of perforated sheet metal in the Rigitulle technique invented by the designer, where the perforated metal is bent and folded, creating a soft and airy fabric-like material. Chair details - small holders that hold the seat and legs together, a delicate curved metal backrest reminiscent of a saddle, and the seat looks light and airy. The graphic design is reminiscent of Le Corbusier's work in Ronchamp's Church. Today, the design gem is on display in the Vitra Design Museum.
