Welcome to Supermachine Studio’s official blog. (***Don’t look for official Supermachine Studio’s website. It does not exist) The content in this blog is all related to the projects we are involved. They are published and updated according to what we are doing at that moment of time (pre-tagged with the year that project starts).
It has been our bad habit not to upload new work since we have been busy in recent months. In these few days we will be uploading a few more projects completed long ago and recently on to our site. Stay TUNED!!! 6 SEP 2017

Found it wrapped in a currier envelope on the table after a meeting out of town. Cool!!!! Thank you Archdaily. Very cute throphy and nice little hard to find archdaily sticker.
Over the years, there are more stuff that we can not show to the public more than we can for different reason. This project is one of the cases. We now called it “Office somewhere” because the awkward relationship we had with the owner who disappeared long time ago for some reason we don’t want to talk about. We tend to think that this is pretty much of any design practices’ nature.. XXXX happens!!!
However we still like our design and think we can show it to the world anonymously. It is a 2 floor extension on existing building. We proposed to build a spaceship-like structure on the existing building. We also proposed to cover the entire existing one with white vertical fins.
KTM Flagship Bangkok
Location: A Square, Sukhumvit 24, Bangkok
Design team: Pitupong Chaowakul with Korakot Meesathien
Although we are more of a bicycle people, we have been designing quite a few motorcycle related projects for the past few years. KTM is the most recent one. The Austrian motobike has a pretty strong appearance which is pretty easy to remember. We designed a Bangkok flagship store for the client based on orange and black. The design of KTM store around the world is very much controlled by their HQ’s manual. It’s not different in our case. Therefore it is more like how much we can tweak what is given to straighten the brand awareness and at the same time present how bold how mean the machines are in static space.
Design team: Pitupong Chaowakul with Kasidis Puaktes and Theerayut Somtua
Client: Mae Fah Luang Foundation
Completion: December 2016
Builder: Mae Fah Luang’s agricultural team with Doi Tung villager workforces and Supermachine studio
In December 2016, our team were invited by Doitung as one of 2 artists to work on an installation as a part of MAE FAH LUANG foundation’s annual year end event called, SEE SAN DOITUNG. It is a small project but we felt honored and grateful to take part because the site was situated right in the heart of King’s Rama9’s mother’s project. Doitung is a famous success example of a reforest project in Chiangrai, North of Thailand.
We proposed to build a 40 meter bamboo tunnel to mark the entrance of the event where the street leading in and out of this hill top is closed and turned to an open market during the 2 week event. We also proposed to clad the tunnel with quilts made stitched from left over handcraft fabric made by hill tribes and people living around Doi Tung villages.
The project is tiny but special for us in a way it was built because our team, Pitupong and Kasidis were embedded at the site. We stayed on the hill for a week watching the building team build it up experimenting on what possible and what not/what technique they were comfortable building and what not. “Sometimes we climbed the structure and hang stuff by ourselves.” The air is clean.. to shut ourselves down from a city life. A week of lung cleansing working experience….. PERFECT!!!!!
