From lighting to mirrors, and furniture to table decor, his imagination bestows unique qualities to exceptional objects.
Poetic, impulsive, and charming, known for the diversity of symbolism in his works, Mathias knows how to mix imagination and aesthetics. He started working with Baccarat in 1996, when the first « Rencontres » collection was created. This collection includes exceptional pieces made by members of Baccarat's « meilleurs ouvriers de France » , the exclusive title given to France's most distinguished craftsmen. The Rencontres collection was very successful as Baccarat sold out of almost all editions.
After this success, the bond between Mathias and Baccarat became stronger. There was no doubt that Mathias would design Baccarat’s new Mille-Nuits lighting collection. Mathias, who had lived in Syria and Turkey with his grandfather as a child, designed Mille-Nuits partly inspired by his childhood memories of a universe filled with a peculiar magic, where sparkling lights evoked the atmosphere of legends from the 1001 Tales of the Arabian Nights.
