In Gargas, Régis Mathieu's chandeliers are presented in an original museum

A true race car buff, Régis Mathieu has taken the opportunity to mix vintage roadsters with his fantasy-filled lighting creations, in a small museum located in the scenic town of Gargas, in the Luberon region.

In Gargas, Régis Mathieu's chandeliers are presented in an original museum

Upon entering the Musée de la Lustrerie Mathieu, implanted in the hamlet of Sauvans, nestled in the Luberon, one immediately is surprised by the unusual mix of vintage cars and crystal chandeliers. An original approach set forth by Régis Mathieu who has opened up this space to the public after his brand was labelized as Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Enterprise of Living Patrimony) by the Ministry of Culture.

A privileged partner of Haute Couture and high-end jewellery, his technical expertise also allows him to restore the chandeliers of historical monuments. And in the rooms of the museum, more than 200 of his fanciful luminaries as well as copies, from the 15th to the 21st century, mesmerize visitors in a fairy tale of lights while taking them on a journey of aesthetical shapes and technological innovations.
