Michel Mangematin (19282012)

Biography Michel Mangematin was a French designer and architect who produced a very limited range of furniture: a dining table, a coffee table and an armchair. In 1957 he went to the USA to study under Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe. The scarcity of Mangematin’s designs reflects his dedication to his architectural career and his devotion to his teaching work at Clermont Ferrand in France.
