Consisting of a long stem fitted with an adjustable diffuser, the Palosanto Outdoor Bollard Light is a striking contemporary light imbued with Christophe Mathieu’s trademark attention to detail and functionality. The position of the diffuser on the stem can be changed to accommodate the height of surrounding vegetation, while the diffuser can be rotated to cast light in an upward or downward direction. Whether used singly to illuminate a prominent feature, or in a group to light up a path, this cutting-edge contemporary light is perfectly adaptable.
His name is French and he was born in Germany, but his Spanish accent points to the Canary Islands, where he grew up. He finished his degree in interior design in Barcelona in the mid 1980's and afterward headed to Milan, discovering industrial design. He collaborated with many architects in the development of products for several companies such as De Padova, Menphis and Driade. He moved to Spain in the 1960’s and lives now in Barcelona where he is one of Marset’s veteran designers. 30 years ago Christophe Mathieu transitioned from being a professional competitive swimmer to the world of design. This makes him open to unforeseen events in life and does not discount the possibility of one day maybe leaving it all and doing something totally different.
