Since 1930, the Tisserant Art & Style bronze factory has been exercising its passion for bronze. A key actor, the company, which has been awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label, develops and carries onthe work of bronze, a true French know-how. In sum, four generations have passed on their knowledge to create, re-create, reproduce and restore pieces, each more exceptional than the last. All of them have been designed and crafted in the Tisserant Art & Style workshops located in the heart of the capital. Furthermore, Tisserant Art & Style is the only bronze maker to have kept its workshops in Paris! This decision allows them to stay close to historical and emblematic monuments, a real source of inspiration. Not to mention that this proximity facilitates meetings and collaborations in the workshop!
Whether it is to conceive, create prestigious projects or restore an 18th century bronze, Tisserant Art & Style’s master craftsmen are at the service of the finest work. Art craftsmen with renowned talent who create unique patinas and exceptional carvings for lighting fixtures, small furniture or decorative objects. At Tisserant Art & Style, the mastery of the gesture and the respect of the material are put at the service of a creative, of a designer to imagine remarkable collections. And to meet the “made to measure” demands of designers, interior decorators and artists, Tisserant Art & Style has developed new techniques of creation. In fact, the art bronzier has been able to face the evolution of its environment by introducing new 3D tools and production techniques to carry out new projects. A strength that allows the development of the art craft.
With the aim to maintain its traditional French know-how while taking up the challenge of adapting to a dynamic sector, Tisserant Art & Style has known how to surround itself. As a matter of fact, in order to create and design luxury lighting and furniture that combines the prestige and contemporary style, the company has set up beautiful collaborations with designers. Since then, designers with a fresh eye who have been able to give life to contemporary creations that combine bronze with new materials. In particular with the IQANDA collection, imagined with Eliott Barnes, whose objects combine brass and natural materials. But that’s without forgetting the most outstanding and prestigious creations of the House. To discover – among others! – The pair of Marie-Antoinette sconces for the Château de Fontainebleau, the restoration of the lighting fixtures for the Louvre Museum or a chandelier made of more than 10 tons of crystals for the Royal Palace in Bangkok. Beauty and art have no limits.
