Le lustre Fold est la pièce maîtresse de la collection du même nom, imaginée en collaboration avec le duo de designers italiens Formafantasma, pour célébrer l'un des thèmes majeurs de la vie d'Henri Matisse : les papiers découpés.

Le lustre Fold existe en deux tailles différentes, 150cm ou 110cm d'envergure, pour habiller tous les espaces quelles qu'en soient leur taille. La force de son caractère couplée à la délicatesse de sa ligne en font une pièce facile à marier avec des intérieurs aussi bien contemporains qu'anciens, s’intégrant simplement dans une décoration moderne ou rehaussant subtilement un style plus vintage.

La stature du lustre Fold permet d’en faire la pièce maîtresse d’un espace de réception mais, grâce à son intensité réglable, il sait aussi s'adapter en luminaire d’ambiance.

Édition limitée de 8 exemplaires + 4 épreuves d’artistes

Chaque pièce est numérotée et signée par les designers et Maison Matisse.

Arts and materials

The creation of this piece was entrusted to six different craftsmen, each bringing a specialized, complex and innovative know-how.

The metal that constitutes this lamp was first cut using laser technology, achieving a very high level of precision. 

After being cut and shaped to reflect the drawing imagined by the designers, the metal is polished and cleaned several times by hand by an expert, to remove the last imperfections of the material, before being protected by a thin layer of varnish.

The paint is then sprayed on, requiring up to 10 successive coats to sublimate the color and obtain the desired effect. A final coat of varnish completes the rendering of the metal, whose unique brilliance offers spectacular depth effects.

Finally, the different elements of the lamp are assembled by hand, the LED light source is carefully placed, and the paper sheet only needs to be slipped on. 


The Fold chandelier is part of the limited edition Fold collection, Maison Matisse's first lighting collection, designed by the italian duo Formafantasma.


The Formafantasma were particularly interested in the creative process by which Henri Matisse, while bedridden following a heavy operation, cut various pieces of paper and attached them, with the help of his assistant, directly to the walls of his studio. Several of the painter's major works were created in this way, the result of the balance between form and color so sought by the painter throughout his life.


Following this technique, the Formafantasma imagined several models of lamps, for which they cut and assembled large sheets of paper. In the course of their work, the paper has given way to metal, a material that is so contrary but which responds to the designers' love of industry and innovation.
