By working from 1993 onwards, with several design and architecture agencies, Dominique Mathieu was trained particularly in furniture design, interior design, architecture and scenography. In 2000, he opened his own studio and focused on furniture and objects. His work is based on research and production projects. A lot of pieces from the first production are now part of national collection such as the Pompidou Centre and FNAC. He was a Villa Medicis resident during the year 2000/2001.
