Artisan LLC. aims to create new products that have never existed by adding extra effort and ingenuity to processing techniques supported by ancient traditions and history. The company offers products with the spirit of cherishing things without being spared the labor of handicrafts (“Artisan” means craftsman in French).
The colouring method employed across its collection of metalware is a traditional copper colouring technique that has been around for a long time in Takaoka City. Originally developed to recolour metals such as brass for outdoor use, the company decides to develop the technique to re-colour stainless steel products that are produced in Tsubame City. After much research, the company is able to successfully apply the colouring technique on stainless steel products, thereby achieving a new visual language for interior goods.
