The master and founder of the innovative and groundbreaking technique Rigitulle, where perforated metal is combined with metal tubing, Mathieu Matégot, designed his tea trolley between 1953 and 1954. The spacious Matégot Trolley is adorned with two trays, the upper available in the different colours and the lower in black and includes a newspaper holder that proves, with its bent metal design, the technique's strength of being flexible as tulle and strong as metal. The lightness it evokes is improved by its rolling castors and makes it float along the floor.
Colour: Black frame and bottom plate with black, grey, rose, white, sand or dusty green top
Dimensions: H72cm x W70.5cm x D57.5cm
Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
