Blachère has been using its illumination know-how in France for over 40 years.

When Blachère illumination was set up in 1973, Jean-Paul Blachere and his colleagues were inventing a profession, know-how and a signature all of their own. We now come up with projects for more than 150 countries, working from France.

Our 19 subsidiaries all fly the flag for our créative work in Europe, Asia and America. The company really is a dream come true, emerging from a family tradition and we are moving forward driven by aesthetic, environmental, economic and digital diversity…

There are amazing pieces leaving our workshops every year, evidence of our position as the traditional leader on the lighting market

The company really is a dream come true, emerging from a family tradition which now stretches back 40 years, which is why it cannot be ignored. Its rich history, firmly rooted in the region it calls home, the Pays d’Apt, has a lot to do with this, and our company shares its DNA with the people who run it, our own family.

Fondation Blachère

Africa has taught us a lot.

“The company is a place where one can make amends for injustices, give Africa another image, put forward its creative image, draw lessons for waste management, water management, consumption methods.” Jean-Paul Blachère

The presence of residential artists and exhibitions is the driving force behind a state of mind based on creation and open-mindedness.”

Sustainable Development

Sustainable and responsible development:
enlightened choices.

“I, you, he/she/it, we you, they … think of the planet’s future”.

For us, sustainable and responsible development is connected both in the singular and the plural, but always in a personal way. It starts with everyday gestures, and enters into the framework of a global vision, for a long time it has gone without saying, because, with our history, we are a little different.

Here it is a question of company culture closely linked to the family spirit, to attachment to certain human values. We try to make enlightened choices.

“We have an international reach, but that doesn’t stop us developing locally.”
