Copacabana Chair: Modern Design Icon

Post Image

The Copacabana Lounge Chair, designed by Mathieu Matégot in 1955, has undergone a thoughtful update by GUBI, making it perfect for today’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Matégot was known for his ability to transform industrial materials into seemingly weightless forms, and the Copacabana is a prime example of his work. The chair features a sculpturally curved structure formed from a single piece of tubular steel, a design that earned it a place in the permanent collection at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

GUBI’s update to the Copacabana Lounge Chair preserves Matégot’s original design while enhancing its ergonomics for contemporary use. The chair’s backrest and seat angles have been adjusted for maximum comfort, and the material has been upgraded to powder-coated stainless steel, making it corrosion-resistant and more durable for outdoor use. Additional perforations in the seat allow for drainage while maintaining the chair’s open, lightweight design. Outdoor upholstery fabrics have also been introduced, allowing the chair to seamlessly transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

The Copacabana’s cushion is available in a selection of indoor and outdoor upholstery fabrics, allowing for customization to suit any space. Two colors are available for the chair’s frame: classic black and International Orange, the exact color of the Golden Gate Bridge, a color that Matégot himself loved.
