Over twenty-five different crafts are practiced at Studio Job, with sculptors and furniture-makers working alongside professionals using laser and 3D printing technology. Graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel set up Studio Job in 1998, and were initially seen as part of the Dutch Design Scene but then the pair moved to Antwerp, Belgium, in 2003 and have remained there ever since. Mixing traditional techniques and innovation, the studio’s playful, one-off objects are a far cry from the minimalist aesthetic that has recently characterised contemporary design. Studio Job are well known for irreverent designs that are fashioned with tenacious craftsmanship, making them hugely popular and their work highly collectible. Their works are housed in permanent collections all over the world, and in over forty museums such as Museum of Art and Design, New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and Guggenheim.
