- Architects of objects, hidden amongst the trees -
Established in 2009, Method is a boutique creative production house, specialising in the design, development, project management and manufacture of remarkable bespoke objects and associated authentic content - primarily for luxury brands around the world.
From humble beginnings as a furniture and trunk-makers - meticulously combining hardwood, leather and metal - the studio has grown into a multi-disciplinary practice, delivering a wide range of creative services with an unmistakable heart of craft and a playful, theatrical style.
Method has carved out a very particular niche as a trusted go-to for complex, finely-crafted, evocative bespoke work, which wordlessly communicates the sophisticated brand values of our clients.
The studio has gleefully worked with the likes of Burberry, Bentley, Mulliner, Vacheron Constantin, Jaguar Land Rover, Estee Lauder, Fortnum & Mason, The Glasgow School of Art and Globe-Trotter, and has exhibited works at the Royal Academy of the Arts in London and the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh, as well as at Berlin and Paris Fashion Weeks.
- Thinkers. Designers. Makers -
Teamwork and practical collaboration is at the very heart of the practise, but the husband and wife team of the studio's co-founders; architect, designer and entrepreneur 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, experiences and perspectives, but together they apply an inventive, holistic approach to the entire process which is uniquely Method.
'We like to think of ourselves as architects of objects. An experienced, down-to-earth, communicative team that can always be trusted to actually care about the work as a whole, to go the extra mile, and to make the process personal and enjoyable...with just a hint of magic!'
Our combined studio and 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 airport and city (25mins) the sawmill is isolated amongst the pines and is very peaceful.
'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 try hard to cultivate'
