Paul Mathieu’s furniture and lighting designs are like the man himself—unique with depth and style.
The commonality of his designs, whether they are a bespoke creation for a client, one of his collections, representations or licensees, are pure Paul Mathieu in their exquisite craftsmanship and aesthetic austerity fabricated from the finest materials and with innovative technology.
His avant-garde furnishings combine traditional and contemporary elements that create sensual and sculptural silhouettes. There is an unassuming harmony of nature that blends the sinuous curves of his designs with tailored geometry, creating a fluidity of components. Graceful and elegant modernism pieces are the result of his highly distinctive aesthetic style.
There is a clean, luxurious simplicity as well as a richness…and always unseen but thoughtful engineering, lending to the design’s mysterious quality. This quality is beautifully expressed in his design of The Gyan Museum in Jaipur, which was awarded an AD50 in 2017.
