Founded in 1948 by Henri Mathieu in the Chutes-Lavie district of Marseille, the Mathieu Lustrerie Atelier has always associated its name with the art of the light. A family business in Provence.
Henri Mathieu created a collection of lighting in 1970s of brushed aluminium blades, treating lights as sculpture.
After Henri’s untimely death in 1982 the workshop was run by his wife Yvette. Then in early 1990 their son, Regis Mathieu assumed the helm. Fascinated by beautiful things since childhood, he immediately understands that his future is linked to history. He expanded sales to the United States and the Middle East, bringing the French style to a prestigious clientele.
Working with the directors of many French historic monuments and in close collaboration with architects has seen Mathieu Lustrerie recognised as the leading authority on historic Chandeliers and their faithful restoration.
After the first project for the Assemblée Nationale, Mathieu Lustrerie restores chandeliers for the Comédie Française, the Opéra Garnier, the Galerie des Glaces at Château de Versailles, plus the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, and the Academy of Music in Philadelphia as well as numerous other public and private homes.
