Robert Mathieu: Rational Lighting

Edited by Caroline Manceau, Pascal Cuisinier. Preface by Jean-Jaques Aillagon. Introduction by Pascal Cuisinier.

Robert Mathieu: Rational Lighting

An exquisite catalogue raisonné on the notoriously collectible lamps of France’s premier midcentury lighting designer

Robert Mathieu (1921–2002) was one of the greatest designers of French lighting, though he remains little known to the general public today—largely because of the sheer rarity of his pieces, which are highly sought after by collectors. Unlike most lighting designers, Mathieu not only designed but also produced his lighting works in his Parisian studio, in a very limited quantity—sometimes less than eight copies. Mathieu is remarkable for both his uniquely fecund imagination—he designed more than 200 models—as well as the consistent high quality of his pieces (his pieces remain in perfect condition today).
Ten years in the making, this exquisite catalog presents all the known models of this lighting artist—many of which have never been seen—illustrated with ample studio photographs as well as other images from his life and career. All stages of his work are accounted for, from his early use of brass rod structures and double lamp shades to his later transition to lacquered aluminum reflectors. Regardless of his material or technique of choice, Mathieu’s aesthetic preference for pure and supple lines shines through.
