Later, in 2003, Mathieu was commissioned by a 13th-century church in Aix-en-Provence to create new liturgical furniture. There, he broke with tradition by installing furniture in a historic context.
Shortly thereafter, he created two new collections, Aria and Madeleine. The first one, a bronze furniture and lighting collection, is produced at a time-honored French foundry. Every piece in the line has been hand-cast and individually finished using traditional craftsmanship. The second, Madeleine, features hand-blown Venetian glass.
Nowadays, Mathieu is highly regarded for his ability to fashion interior spaces that reflect their occupants’ tastes and sensibilities. Elaborate and sensual, Mathieu’s interiors exude a true elegance, and his designs marry handcrafted techniques with modern style.
