Spearheaded by the fourth generation of Henri Matisse’s descendants, Maison Matisse offers a three-dimensional interpretation of the artist’s universe celebrating shapes and colors. His family wishes to honour, transmit and share the boldness and values of a universally beloved icon.

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Henri Matisse’s birth, a collection of limited edition vases will be presented for the first time next October during the FIAC. It is the result of a carte blanche, dreamed up by three international designers: Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Jaime Hayon and Alessandro Mendini, who respectively designed and produced three emblematic pieces, edited in series of 8 + 4.

In a second phase, Maison Matisse will present in the first quarter of 2020 a limited series of design objects devoted to the art of living, created in collaboration with young designers and expert artisans showcasing an unparalleled savoir-faire.
