Studio Job, the pioneer of conceptual design, will celebrate its twentieth anniversary in several venues at once. During Milan Design Week the company will open the first permanent “art gallery” in Milan, in Fuorisalone, in the Porta Venezia area, where it will collect a retrospective of its best works created in these twenty years, including in collaboration with brands such as Venini, Gufram, Seletti, and Qeeboo.
In the flagship store, Seletti on Corso Garibaldi will be displaying Blow, which emerged as a result of Studio Job and Seletti. The task of the brand is to offer design lovers interesting art furniture items at an affordable price. Such, for example, as “Lazy chair” in the upholstery with a pattern imitating hand-painted. Studio Job designers came up with two upholstery options: “Lazy Artist” and “Lazy President”.
Seletti together with the quirky duo, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel create the craziest and most innovative design brand collaboration with unconventional and irresistibly cheeky designs that will be displayed at Milan Design Week.
So during Milan Design Week, at Corso Como, 10, you’ll be able to see items designed by Studio Job for Qeeboo, with hand-painted and rust finishes, which are made in the Italian craft workshop using a special technology that allows the plastic to “rust” and “oxidize”. At one of the first Studio Job exhibitions in Milan, bronze sculptures covered with green patina were presented, and later Job released the “Last Supper” rusty collection. Studio Job‘s founder, Job Smets, says that for him, plastic is the new bronze.
