Studio Job

Amsterdam, Netherlands

"Soulmates Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000. In the fifteen years since they graduated from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven and formed the studio, they have become contemporary cultural pioneers who are slowly revolutionizing common preconceptions about the distinct realms of art and design. Striving towards the creation of Gesamtkunstwerk, which sometimes translates poorly to “aesthetics” but more precisely means a ‘synsthesis of the arts’ or “universal artwork”, Studio Job often reference the German composer Richard Wagner’s aesthetic ideals in their practice as they seek and move toward the clearest and most profound expression of the stories and mythologies with which they engage and bring to life.

Studio Job’s work is in the true spirit of the Renaissance where techniques are interchanged and were disciplines are disregarded towards creation of the new, where ideas and imagery are appropriated with ease regardless of geographic or conceptual boundaries and repurposed into something new, where culture, spirituality and aesthetics converge in one cacophonous space, and where production and craftsmanship yield one-of-a-kind and never-before-seen objects and environments that bridge art and design occupying and redefining the gray area in between."
