The vanguard of French lighting company Mathieu Lustrerie since 1992, Regis Mathieu believes his roots have driven him to amalgamate the three traditions of research, technology and art in the conceptual designs of his chandeliers. After pursuing an MBA and Diplome De Sup De Co, Regis immediately joined his family business with an objective to craft intricate illuminators and give these ornate pieces the respect and stature they deserve globally. He has been instrumental in realising several iconic chandeliers, reviving antique lighting the world over including in the Laxmi Vilas Palace, Vadodara, the Opera Garnier, The Galerie Des Glaces De Versailles etc. and has also invented a revolutionary LED bulb that reproduces a halo-like effect and colours of a real candle. Always in search of excellence, he has developed techniques to facilitate the packaging, storage and transport of decorative lights. Today, the maverick wears many hats of an artisan, entrepreneur, expert, car and chandelier collector, designer and philanthropist.
