Studio Job, the pioneer of conceptual modern design, would be celebrating its 21st anniversary in Milan Design Week, but unfortunately, that wasn’t possible, so I Lobo You, decided to reminisce about their most amazing art furniture and decorative pieces that make the design brand so exceptional and unique in the contemporary design range.
Based in Antwerp and the Netherlands, Studio Job is a design studio and duo founded by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel. As pioneers of contemporary conceptual and sculptural art, Studio Job combes traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects and sculptural furniture that shares little with the reigning aesthetic of minimalism and sparseness.
Studio Job, a groundbreaking art and design studio based in Antwerp, Amsterdam, and Milan, offers a diverse variety of craftsmanship pieces made by traditional craftspeople such as sculptors and specialists in casting bronze and making stained-glass windows and hand painting, work alongside experts’ adept in using lasers and 3D printing.
Spreading a renaissance spirit, Studio Job has crafted a body of creative works that draws upon classical, popular and contemporary design and highly visual and sculptural art: their iconic, heraldic and cartoon-like sculptures and modern furniture pieces are popular with collectors worldwide.
