There are many great designs of the 20th century that – although visionary in their heyday and undeniably exceptional in their craftsmanship – have become out of step with the style of modern living. Rather than consigning such pieces to the museum, Talisman is engaged in an ongoing project to reinterpret and recraft these works, giving them an aesthetic overhaul that befits the needs and tastes of contemporary lifestyles.
These are the Talisman Editions. From their British workshops, Talisman’s team of artisans and specialists draw upon a range of craft skills, many of which date back centuries, including cabinet making, stone masonry, bronze casting, wood turning, precious metal leafing and some of the UK’s most accomplished and admired lacquer work. With their unparalleled expertise – and with a little time and patience – Talisman captures the essence of the piece, adjust, amend and replace fittings, trims and linings, and add embellishments and ornamentation that transforms the piece into a spectacle worthy of the present day – without losing the soul of the original designer’s creative vision.
