So Watt is a Sydney-based team of creators, inventors and designers who challenge the ordinary. We believe that the future of goods-making is ethical, local and inspirational. We take a highly creative approach to manufacturing, supporting local industry, and helping to inspire the next generation of makers.
Local Australian Manufacturer
So Watt is a design studio which specialise in industrial design and manufacturing services of bespoke furniture and accessories in Sydney. We are the Modern Maker – challenging the ordinary of what you perceive a design studio in Sydney to be. We help you get the best results from your project, whether you know exactly what you want, or you still need a little help with the final design for manufacture.
The Right Materials for Everything from Industrial Manufacturing to Art
At So Watt, we know the value of always using the right materials for any job. We work with nearly every imaginable material other than MDF or Chipboard for environmental reasons. Our plywood services are the most popular – we work with plywood nearly every day! The different types and species of plywood available makes it a versatile choice for all types of projects.
Our Rover table is one of our best examples of plywood cutting and design. We use high-grade Birch plywood in a minimal design that is striking in its simplicity. It doesn’t have visible screws or brackets that interfere with the design of most desks. The clean design inspires creativity from the entire team, and it keeps standing strong.
Whether you are starting a new project or need a little help with part of an existing one, So Watt is one of the best design studios in Sydney. Contact us today to talk about creating striking, functional furniture, products and spaces for your workplace or lifestyle.
IS YOUR DESIGN READY TO GO?
The process: how does it all work?
Through years of experience, we’ve come to define project success in one word: collaboration. The projects with the best outcome for clients are a team effort. Below is a simplified Project Roadmap showing the steps involved in achieving a successful project on time and on budget. By following these steps, all parties know what to expect, all correct information is supplied, and all milestones are met. The outcome is exactly what our clients dreamt of – and then some!
Send us your brief
What are you looking to have made? Do you have a moodboard? Can you supply sketches? Dimensions are really important! What is your budget? When do you need this by? Are you wanting delivery and install?
Let’s get specific
Taking your brief we come back with any questions and suggestions. This will be in the format of an email or phone call and will help us understand your project better. Sometimes a site will be necessary. We aim to give you a budget guide for your project if we have enough information.
Formalising your project
If you are happy with the directions we suggest for your project / design and feel comfortable with the budget price guide we indicate, then we can move into a formal quote which will give you more details on scope and cost.
After you approve our quote, we will provide a deposit invoice for the design & drafting of your project. Upon payment we being the detailed work of drawing your project and provide this to you for final sign off.
Making your order
With your approved shop drawings we can get started on the manufacture of your project. This is all done in-house at So Watt in Marrickville and the team will provide you with updates as we go along.
Dispatching your project
Depending on the project we may need to come and install the finished work. The team will coordinate this with you. Otherwise our logistics team will deliver anywhere in Australia and our couriers look after smaller orders both locally and internationally.
So Watt x Dulux
Check out the colour scheme in the Dulux Colour Forecast inspired by So Watt's very own colour creation, Blush. This colour was mixed by eye and has an orange undertone.
“There isn’t anything these guys can’t manage, build, install, produce or make happen - all the way with a smile on their face - big ups to Sophie & Jono.”
