About this brand new furniture

The Nagasaki dining chair by Mathieu Matégot and issued by GUBI was designed in 1954 and remains its most famous piece. It was exhibited for the first time at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs in 1954 and, with Arne Jacobsen's Ant Chair (1952), is one of the few three-legged models. The chair is made of perforated sheet metal - Rigitulle, which characterizes the work of Matégot, and presents details, such as the small stirrup that holds the seat and the legs together. The back and seat are curved and arched, similar to the shape of a saddle and the overall effect is that of lightness. The highly graphic construction evokes the work of Le Corbusier for the church of Ronchamp. Today, the chair is part of the permanent collection of the Vitra Design Museum, a privately owned property of international renown. Several color combinations available.
