Robert Mathieu (1921-2002) is one of the most talented creators and producers of French lighting from the 1950’s. He frequented the Boulle school of applied arts before beginning a career as a clockmaker in 1938. In 1949 he debuted his creations at 98 boulevard Charonne which would remain his flagship store. His first pieces rivaled ingenuity and were marked by his initial training in clock making.
