The desire to create our concept dates back to the time of our meeting, there are already more than 5 years. It took several years for the seed idea and we quickly left our heart speak and our deep desire. This is a project our image through which we express our passion for crafts, fashion, design, art, photography and web. We want to offer the beautiful, the unusual, the cool and we want to offer the well. It's blending our expertise and our curiosity we would like to offer you what's more cool !
Cool machine is a creative online concept store and combines arty craft contemporary designs and unique vintage pieces in a punchy atmosphere ! Our wish: to offer a quirky lifestyle, original with an amused look on the trends !
Cool machine is a selection of sharp pieces and forward-thinking. We bring together different artists and emerging artists (ceramists, graphic designers, decorators, illustrators ...) worldwide. Our delight is in the discovery of their work and share them with you. We select the favorite. These designers represent to us the very cool art crafts of our generation. From France to Australia via the Netherlands, our favorites have no geographical limit !
Cool machine, so it's also a selection of vintage clothing with bold patterns often, an unconventional mode. A range we found ourselves and to which we give a facelift before been presented to you. Our universe is inspired by the 80s and 90s, funky prints echo the arty creations and quirky of our artists.
