Our contribution in the research of new bulbs did not lead us to the realm of modern and sophisticated engineering inventions that alter the light source, a mystery without which things would not be what they are.

We merely perpetuate this, by improving it, a willingness which ment for centuries, lighting chandeliers was confined to candles and to mimic candles. Our bulbs burn the color of a flame with longevity… If logic follows, the medium allows the freedom to play with more decidedly contemporary forms.

Abysse

Born of a collaboration between Philippe Renaud, the workshop’s artistic director and Régis Mathieu this artwork plays on the in nite re ections provided by tricks of the mirror.

The  ame bulbs created by the Mathieu Workshop are wonderful at re ecting on this plane of unhampered mirror. These technology of these candles does not look backward they are of the present. When factoring economy, these «LED» bulbs perfectly recreate the magic of a lit candle with the technical advancements of today … or tomorrow.
