- Architects of Objects -
We specialise in the development and design of finely crafted bespoke objet’ and unique handmade furniture.
Our studio and workshop delivers a wide range of end-to-end creative services, from conception to project-management, design to small-batch artisanal manufacture.
Always with a meticulous eye for elegant detail and a playful, theatrical style.
Our passionate and experienced team of designers and craftsmen works directly with luxury brands, architects and agencies to develop and design complex, evocative bespoke work - which wordlessly communicate their sophisticated values (and often quite literally transports & showcases them) through elegant form, considered function and meticulous craftsmanship.
We can happily work with an existing concept brief, collaborate with a client to develop designs or fully manage and generate a new project - from the merest spark of an idea.
Our creative team also consults on multi-disciplinary craft, design and bespoke storytelling challenges.
We have been fortunate to work with:
Burberry, Bentley Motors, Vacheron Constantin, Jaguar Land Rover, Estee Lauder, Aesop, LVMH, Fortnum & Mason, The Glasgow School of Art,Globe-Trotter, Edinburgh Castle and Hermès.
Our work has also been exhibited at the Royal Academy of the Arts in London and the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh.
Teamwork, traditional technique and practical collaboration is at the very heart of the what we do - with the skilled hands and experience of each of our trusted makers evident in every creation.
But the husband and wife team of the studio's co-founders and creative directors; architect and designer Marisa Giannasi and second generation woodworker Callum Robinson, are the filter through which every decision is considered, refined and distilled.
Both bring very different skills, backgrounds and perspectives, but together they apply an inventive, holistic and practical approach to the entire process which is uniquely Method.
(ambitious, authentic, playful…and obsessively well made)
'We like to think of ourselves as architects of objects; in part because of the wide variety of artisanal skills we combine, manage and blend in our day to day practise',
…to create something greater than the sum of its parts’
Method's combined design studio and award-winning artisan workshop is located in a lovingly restored timber sawmill, nestled in the hills above the historic Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, in central Scotland.
Although easily accessed from Edinburgh city and airport (25 mins drive) the sawmill is wonderfully isolated among mature spruce and pine, making it an ideal location for atmospheric filming, photography and press-visits - whilst remaining within comfortable reach of London.
'Being surrounded by trees, water and wildlife - and so much a part of the changing seasons - has a strong influence on our work, and on the material-driven, gleefully hands-on atmosphere we weave into the fabric of each project'
