Nagasaki Chair by Mathieu Mategot
The Nagasaki Chair is probably the best-known design by Hungarian/French designer Mathieu Mategot (you may remember his Kangaroo table featured last month). This iconic piece has recently been re-issued by Gubi, which is great news for fans of 1950s design looking for a new designer to obsess over.
The chair rests on three-legs and is made up of juxtaposed geometric shapes. It is made from perforated metal and is available with either a red, yellow or white seat, contrasting with the black finish of the legs and backrest.
The chairs are available from Nest, priced £317 each.
