Born in Hamburg in 1961, Christophe Mathieu graduated in Interior Design from the School of Applied Art and Artistic Trades, in Barcelona, having been on placement in Hamburg collaborating with Nitz, Prash and Sigl Architects. Subsequently, he lived for three years in Milan, where he collaborated with: the architect Marco Zanuso Jr. in the development of products for companies such as De Padova, Menphis and Driade; the architects Roberto Menghi and Giulio Crespi; the industrial designer Sergio Coppola and the architect Antonio Zanuso in the prize-winning project for the Piazza della Republica. His time in Milan had a profound effect on him.
In 1989, he decided to move to Barcelona where he collaborated with Alfredo Arribas, Eduard Samsó and Javier Mariscal. Companies with which he has worked are: Bosa, Artelano, Disform, Metalarte, Bover, Chupa-Chups, Smint, Nike, Bticino, Comas & Partners and Marset.See other lights/products from Christophe Mathieu

Minimal profile, wonderful, up/down soft light
I have gone through quite a few products trying to find the right fit for this space. The dining area is part of a greater space in this new contemporary home in the hills near Stanford University. Respecting the view of the surrounding hills was a priority. I needed a fixture that would flood the table and ceiling, without producing glare on the nearby floor to ceiling windows. This fixture also has a low profile and compliments, rather than competes, with the view. This light took months to get, but it's perfect for this application. The simple ribbons have character, and soften the overall look as well as the light emitted. See my review of the Silantra 04, as I purchased both.
