The three-legged Nagasaki chair was designed in 1954 by Mathieu Matégot and is still his best-known piece. The Nagasaki chair is included in the permanent exhibition at the Vitra Design Museem.

The Nagasaki chair is made of perforated metal sheet and features unique details, such as the tiny stirrup that holds the seat and the legs together. The delicately curved perforated steel seat and back creates a sense of lightness. Today, the chair symbolises 1950s design. Matégot was the first person to combine metal tubing with perforated sheet metal – “rigitulle”, a pairing that characterises his work.

In addition to the chair, a matching Nagasaki bar stool is also part of the Nagasaki Collection and is also made of perforated metal but with four tubular metal legs.
