Dédal Shelf

By Mathieu Matégot

Mathieu Matégot's Dédal Shelf is a result of his passion for the groundbreaking and innovative pairing of metal tubing and perforated metal sheet. The Dédal Shelf is designed in 1955 and holds the advantages that Rigitulle entails - the metal's hardness as well as the fabric's lightness. Though apparently simple, the Dédal Shelf is often composed on several levels. The graphical shape matches each other and when grouped together they form a new design, almost a geometric pattern - especially when the shelves are juxtaposed.

MATHIEU MATÉGOT

 

Mathieu Matégot (1910–2001) was a self-taught Hungarian designer who settled in Paris after travelling, studying, and gaining experience in set design, window dressing, fashion, and tapestry.

He volunteered for the French army during the Second World War but was captured by the Germans and put to work in a mechanical accessories plant. It was here that he recognized the potential for perforated sheet metal to lend transparency, weightlessness and modernity to new forms. After the war, he developed Rigitulle – his take on the material – and his own folding, shaping, and bending technique.
