Maurice Matet (b.1903) was a French interior designer and decorator.
Matet worked as a designer and decorator in the Grands Magasins du Louvre’s Studium decorating workshop beginning in 1923. He occasionally cooperated with Etienne Kohlmann and Dubard. He became a professor at the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Paris in c1930. After WWII, he continued to design furniture, creating models in metal and glass and silver tableware, with radically Modern lines.
He created the bedroom and office (with Etienne Kohlmann) for the Salon d’Automne in 1923 and the dining room for the Société des Artistes Décorateurs Salon in 1926. (SAD). Tubular-metal furniture with rubber and leather fittings designed by Matet, Kohlmann, Edouard-Joseph Bourgeois, René Herbst, and Charlotte Perriand was displayed at the 1928 Salon of SAD. The 1929 event included Matet’s more classic Art Déco furniture (made by Saddier). At the 1925 Paris ‘Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs and Industriels Modernes,’ he designed the dining room of Studium Louvre.
