We are So Watt Studio.

Our team of Industrial Designers research, create and manufactures striking functional furniture, products and spaces at our purpose-built studio and workshop in Marrickville. We collaborate with both the private and public sectors.

Industries we have worked with so far:

Architects, Interior Designers, Advertising & PR Agencies, Industrial Design Studios, Furniture Brands, Commercial & Corporate Fitout Firms, Signage Companies, Digital Agencies, Packaging Brands, Fashion Industry, Retailers, Restaurants & Councils.

We believe that the future of goods-making is ethical, local and inspirational.

We are Industrial Designers with an inner-city workshop.

You may need help kickstarting your new product idea, or you could be in a huge hurry for some custom signage for your shop launch. Whatever it might be, if it requires some creative thinking and a hands on approach, then we are itching to help you out!

We can deliver from start to finish.

A new approach to Aussie Made

We have planted ourselves as close as possible to our clients and our open door policy supports a collaborative approach on your project.

Our workshop in Marrickville keeps stock of our most popular materials, and our Biesse CNC Router can chew through anything you throw at it. We are all about getting the job done efficiently, on time and without compromising quality.

Our process is tried and tested — read about it here!

 Our Values

 

Our Work

Future Friendly

We’re of the buy-it-once school of manufacture. Our pieces can be repaired or adapted to last through untold settings. Where possible we use local, reusable, recycled and low-emission materials and parts. 

Our Service

Providing Certainty

Clients value their commissions most when they’ve been a part of the creative process. So, we’re big on sharing our ideas, methods and ethics – while taking your timeframes and brief very seriously. 

 
 

Our Craft

Artful Balance

Behind every So Watt creation is a harmony of inputs. Achieving that intersection between purpose, utility and design enables us to deliver products that are made to last. 

 
 

Our Gift

Powerful Curiosity

Without the rigid science behind our experimentation, we wouldn’t contribute anything new to the world. And without that experimentation, we wouldn’t be us. 

Our People

Good Company

Creative sparks have to bounce between designers, staff, machinists, clients and others. It’s like ping-pong balls in a science lab. Workshops, exhibitions, conversations – such collaborations are when magic happens.

So Watt studio was on the ball from the start, helping me with my market stall fitout. Everyone who passed my stall loved the final product. I would not hesitate to work with them again.
