Review Panel: Tina Atic, Debora Barton, Wenjin Lai, Suheri Purnomo, Meri Samosir, Vei Tan

The studio is a continuation of the SUPERWORK series that simultaneously explores; typological experiments through rule-based process techniques and; speculating on new experimental models for the contemporary work environment.

Typhoon Haiyan Christmas Appeal

We launched our charity pins for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan officially yesterday, Nov 29 @ 11am.  We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far and also to the people who have begun to download the 3d printing files!

We just want everyone to know that the x10 limited edition custom hand painted pins have sold out in 2.5 hours yesterday after they were released!  What is left are x30 of the hand painted pins showcasing the Philippine Flag painted in red, blue, yellow and white @ AUD$15 each (plus postage and handling).  Also, we have unlimited amounts of unpainted versions @ AUD$5 each (plus postage and handling).  Payments are made via bank transfer only at the moment or cash if you’re close by.  Please send us an email at patrick.macasaet@superscale.com.au or vei.tan@superscale.com.au if you would like to purchase some pins.  Let us know how many you would like.

Norstar

At SUPERSCALE, we love to diversify and get our hands on different things as much as possible.

Recently, we went on a site visit to Norstar Steel Recyclers at their head office at Laverton North where the largest steel recycling machinery in Australia will be constructed.  They process ferrous and non ferrous metal through a variety of methods to include: sorting, shredding, shearing, oxy cutting, baling and compacting.  It was a privilege to be shown around by Managing Director, Paul Sailah and giving us a detailed tour of the processes involved.

We’re very excited to be involved with this project.  We’ve always been inspired by these steel giants and we’ve admired the industrial and techy aesthetic of these things from far away.  Now, we get to help build these big boys’ toys!

Cotton Mills HQ

After a hectic month, we’ve now moved in to our studio at the old Docklands Cotton Mills.  Opened in 1920’s as the Bardford Cotton Mills, it’s now an awesome hub of creative small business, design studios, artists and much more.  We’ve got big plans for our humble studio and we’re still under construction but feel free to visit us anytime!

Space & Prototype Prototype

We have found a new home!  Hooray!  We’re in the process of designing and moving in to our new studio space.  In light of this, we wanted the space to be, in large part, a place of desktop manufacturing experimentation.  Hence, we’ve been recently designing and prototyping 3d printed furniture components to go within our studio.  We’re trying to mix customised 3d printed components with off-the-shelf materials from the local hardware store and we’re attempting to use no glue, pegs, nails, screws, etc.  They simply slide and lock into place.  We quite like the blend of high-tech printing with lo-tech processes.

superscale

A year ago we launched MDVP as an experimental design practice to primarily continue our research from our Masters Thesis’ and since then we’ve been experimenting with quite a lot of facets of design besides architecture to include: prototyping, graphics and products.  We felt like we were still navigating our way and wanted to experiment more beyond the boundaries of architecture.  Thus, SUPERSCALE was born.  We envisioned Superscale as a massive umbrella where we can operate, test, explore and investigate through varying fields of scales, mediums and areas of design.  We’re very excited and can’t wait to launch a few things we’ve been researching and working on later in the year.  Thank you everyone!
