Robert Mathieu I Vintage designer

Robert Mathieu founded his own company, both producing and creating pieces. He quickly became recognized as an important figure in the modern design movement in France, similar to the other producers of that time, like Disderot and Luminalite.

He would first create pratical structures before imagining the rest of the form, as we can understand with the name of his company : «r.mathieu : luminaire rationel» Robert Mathieu was the principal designer of the r.mathieu design company but he was associated sometimes with other important designers, such as Michel Buffet who created a famous floor light for the company.
