The New Artisans

Handmade Designs for Contemporary Living

Olivier Dupon


A dazzling collection of work by over 70 artisans, who all use their expert skills and techniques to produce stylish, whimsical, one-of-a-kind wonders


This book captures the new mood – a return to a preference for the unique and the handmade. Design expert Olivier Dupon has sourced the cream of the contemporary design world from all over Europe, Australia and the United States, profiling 75 artisans who use craft techniques, rather than mass-production methods, to create stylish, whimsical, covetable objects. Hundreds of colour photographs feature a huge variety of crafts, including art, ceramics, furniture, glasswork, jewelry, lighting, metalwork, papercraft, textiles and woodwork.

Complete with a directory of products, and Dupon’s personal recommendations for inspiring shops and websites to visit, this is the perfect resource for discovering unique and beautiful objects made by new, talented artisans from all around the world.
