About Supermachine Studio / Contact


We believe that it’s good to know what designer think about his projects and how he creates them from his own words. Journalists and experts writes about these projects on design magazines from their points of view. Both opinions should contribute to one another. This blog is what we do in our part. We write about our projects the way we do and think about them. This is our official (and most complete) web-based information. Don’t look for our website.
