The interest in the project and it’s research started growing and soon companies wanted to hire Superlab. Superlab the company was founded in 2014 as an experimental design laboratory with the main goal to study the future workplace and the furniture design of tomorrow.

Because at Stone nothing comes before the idea and the people. At Stone, we speak of nothing beyond life experience. An extremely basic idea that many have forgotten.
Kauppi & Kauppi
Kauppi & Kauppi is a designer duo with roots in the very north and south of Sweden. Johan & Nina have both earned their MFA degree at the Academy of Design & Crafts at The University of Gothenburg. In 2016 they established the shared design studio in Sweden, after living several years in New York and Frankfurt. The studio approaches design in all scales, from spatial projects to tactile objects in the hand’s scale. The studio´s design philosophy is identified by a search for a pure and restrained design, celebrating the added values that makes a project unique and genuine. The inspiration is often found in the contrasts, between north and south and in the dynamic between tranquil nature and pulsing cityscapes. Kauppi & Kauppi has attracted international attention through publications and several design awards such as Swedish Design Awards, Archiproduct Design Award, Muuuz International Design Awards and three German Design Award Gold, to mention some of their honorable highlights.
