Studio Job

A place where technique, science and ornamental designs merge - embracing an art form of totality. This is an exemplary component of the designs featured in Studio Job, founded in 2000 by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel. Their work can be found in over forty museums internationally.

Studio Job embraces the renaissance spirit, combining both traditional and modern techniques, producing so called: “once-in-a-life-time-objects”. Acclaimed by a love of detail and freedom of expression they are seen as prime movers in contemporary applied art. Experimental, highly specific and still entirely universal, the body of work expresses pure craftsmanship focusing on quality instead of quantity for the masses. Thus extreme designs take precedence. As Job Smeets proclaims “We want to build up an oeuvre, not merely score a few hits.”

The Job Office series was designed for the Lensvelt collection. Staying close to their surrealistic and contemporary style of design, the collection is depicted through stark and brightly colored pieces of furniture, accompanied by a lamp. The collection is accommodated with striking gold details enhancing the iconic cartoon-like manners of their unique design craft.
