Matang is an architectural and furniture practice between Paris and Mumbai, created by Lucien Dumas.

A practice exploring the relation between the different stones from Rajasthan with European wood.

A relation between Indian temple sculptors, working with the same stones for decades, with a french contemporary carpentry.

A process built around the natural materials from a territory, their expressions, the way they are meeting and the hands shaping them.

As an interface, these sensitive objects express a skill, a culture, a relation to stone, wood, earth. By embodying the essence of a territory, these projects reveal the relation made by men and their environment.
