SupertoysSupertoys is a designer duo formed by Merle Flügge and Job Mouwen. We founded SupertoysSupertoys in 2018 to fuse our backgrounds in architecture & design (and therefore our compulsive obsession with digital precision and craftsmanship ;) with our passion for sci-fi movies, colourful art and beams of energy.
With each of our projects we aim to evoke an emotional and intimate vibration between objects, spaces and people, to become part of one immersive living system full of colour and playful shapes. We believe that everything is alive, energy and vibration …so did Einstein :) …in a way we are modern animists.
(Also, we love the music by Soft Hair and want them to play a concert in Amsterdam.)
Merle graduated cum laude from the Piet Zwart Institute, Master Interior Architecture: Research + Design in 2017 in Rotterdam. For her graduation project she received the prestigious Willem de Kooning Research Award and MIARD Alumni Research Award.
Job is a practising architect and design lecturer. He worked for UNStudio as senior architect before starting his own practice.
