Like many of his peers Mategot travelled the world in search of inspiration, techniques and upon return transformed these impressions into his own unique designs and interpretations. Whether it was industrial processes or aesthetics, he always collected and interpreted – he even patented and set up his own production to apply these new technologies into his designs, He was a true innovator of his time!

From the spring of 2014 Gubi’s collection of original Mategot designs will include: The Nagasaki Chair & Stool, The Dedal Shelf, The Mategot Coatrack and the Kangourou Table plus four new pieces; The Mategot Trolley, The Demon Shelf and the Copacabana chair and tables.
