Far away, an autumn day in 1997 Mathieu Challières leaves the world of larges companies to set up a new start as a design editor, considering doing for others what he has always done for himself : designing and making furnitures and decoration objects.
His next step is exposing in the fair Maison & Objet where he shows console tables, bookshelves and luminaires coming straight out of his mind and... his apartment.
As a result he sold two plaster chandeliers. It does sound small but it meant a lot.
He then rents half a porter's lodge in the neighborhood of Sentier in Paris and generates his first fancy named plaster chandeliers : Holalà, Aïe Aïe Aïe...
After being selected quiet a few times by the agency Nelli Rody in the new tendances of Maison & Objet, he now sells his creations in more than thirty countries over the world from Sweden to Japan, the US, Switzerland, Australia... As a matter of fact the 75% of his turnover is done abroad.
The whole production is made in France.
