Following their fascination with animism and subjectivity, Supertoys Supertoys explores the concepts of metamorphosis and object-hybrids: the idea of a transformation from one object to another or from an immature to a mature form is a theme central in their designs. Their motivation is to find ways to express the objects' own existence.
Supertoys Supertoys consider themselves modern animists. With their work they invite the viewer to rethink our ongoing entanglement of being human through things to, rather, being human among things, where objects are designed for what they are and not what they are for. And where objects and things become co-protagonists of a bigger story of humanity with the open-ended existential question: who are we?
Supertoys Supertoys is a design duo formed by Merle Flügge and Job Mouwen, based in NL.
