Daily Dose Pick: Studio Job

A standout at design fairs for nearly a decade, Dutch design team Studio Job mixes artistic forms and stylized craft to exquisite ends.

Led by Nynke Tynagel and Job Smeets, the company produces limited-edition objects and installations that utilize pre-Industrial Revolution techniques alongside digital processes. From enlarged, bronze farm objects that pay tribute to the peasant life to gold furniture that ironically celebrates a corrupt scoundrel, Studio Job’s functional and unusable pieces alike beautifully blur the boundaries between art and design.

Visit Studio Job’s gallery page at Vivid, read a T Magazine feature, watch a YouTube video interview, and buy the design team’s new limited edition Rizzoli monograph.
