Biarritz Serving Trolley by Mathieu Matégot for Artimeta, Netherlands, 1957


Calculate shipping cost
A beautiful metal trolley by French designer Mathieu Matégot, manufactured by Artimeta in the Netherlands in 1957. This highly recognizable model is named “Biarritz” after the French coastal area. Made of white lacquered metal with a perforated lower top, as is iconic for Matégot’s style, and a black lacquered serving tray held on the top. It has a minimalist style, that works really well with the material. The four grey metal wheels are a perfect compliment to the overall style and provide ease of use as well, so does the black lacquered handle at the top that matches the serving tray. This piece is ready to impress in any decor and for any occassion! It remains in good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Dimensions: 59 × 35 × 51 cm (W x D x H) Mathieu Matégot (1910-2001) was a Hungarian and French designer and material artist. He was one of the most renowned French designers of the 1950s. Born and educated in Budapest, he moved to France in the early 1930s, where he worked as a window dresser and women’s clothing designer. He learned metalworking techniques as a prisoner of war in the 1940s, and upon his release began designing furniture, pioneering many of what we now identify as midcentury design tropes, like metal-mounted rattan, steel tubing and perforated sheet metal. By the 1970s, Matégot returned to producing tapestries.
