Supermachine Studio's Blog

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.

Supermachine studio is a multi-disciplinary design studio founded and based in Bangkok in 2009 by Thai architect, Pitupong chaowakul. Before that (in 2003) he founded another studio called Thisdesign with 5 other friends. Supermachine studio’s projects are extremely diverse, their projects includes small objects like bottle openner, installations & exhibitions and bigger scale projects like shopping malls and large outdoor music festivals.

    Sawatdee Krup,
    My name is Manoj and I have seen some of your works and I like them very much. I have a land area around Wong Wien Yai/Taksin which is around 600 sq yards. I want to make it into a parking space. But I do not know which concept design to use. I am on a low budget which I think might move you away from doing this project. I want to use material and stuff that are available in Thai market. Its a simple parking space for around 90 cars. Yes, we need a sun roof.
    I tried to contact you but could not find anyone. Or if you have someone that you can recommend me to, who does good work, that would be great. My phone number is 081 8441321

        Register in website like in other general websites. Then you will see the “Post a project” menu on the top. Go there. There will be some information and photo. As well as location of the project, just single click on google map in there, it will automatically locate your project.

        The website aims for anyone to be able to share their architectural project, however, if it is much difficult, I can do all posting for you. Please do not hesitate to let me know.
