“This is it” Glass hopper is ready for Big Mountain II

After 8 months of preparation, Supermachine Studio with Jiro Endo team under the name “Glass hopper” is ready for production for Big Mountain music festival II at Bonanza, Saraburi. The construction on site has already started on over 20 items we design, from stages, facilities to tiny event rubber stamps.

Some images from the construction going on at the site at the moment:

When asked in what role we are in the society that undergoes the conflict, as a designer, we have been responding with series of our designs. This year for Big Mountain Music Festival 2, there is the new version of Kamar design (see last year market design) for the Kamar market. Our just out of the owen design pattern is called “Prong-dong” (Thai word meaning “Reconciliation”) mimicking Thai government’s policy in solving the political conflict between Red and Yellow protesters. The Kamar band will consist of only 2 thread colors; red and yellow. We hope this simple and traditional object is carrying a critical message towards what is going in our society right now. 5,000 pieces of the Kamar will be produced and used in Big Mountain Music festival 2’s market (taking place 10 Dec 2010)

More detail will be posted here as we are approaching the final stage of design.
