Super Terrain, founded in 2014 and based in Nantes and Marseille, produces work which is always sympathetic to context, taking into account both physical form and intended use. Working with diverse skills, they offer clients a careful blend ofsavoir-faire to build a shared vision and a trust-based relationship.
Their production process often takes inspiration from practical designskills. For example, involving classic printing techniques, innovative lightingrigs and larger installations. But the ST collective is equally at home in thedigital realm, producing video and interactive works which carry over some oftheir obvious love of ‘real’ hands-on creative expression.
Alongside their commercial work, Super Terrain continue to build anartistic practice. Through creative residencies and self-initiated editorialprojects they develop works which explore the nature of the artist-designer’stools, of images and their reproducibility. These experiments refine and extendthe studio’s graphic design practice in the realm of story-telling.

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
