About Job and Nynke
Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000 after graduating from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven. In the fifteen years since then, they have developed into contemporary pioneers of personal expression. Job Smeets likes to call their style ‘New Gothic’, with perfectionism and uniqueness as its key features. Nynke Tynagel talks of a symphony orchestra where a cohesive piece of music is created from an abundance of different sounds. Technique, science and ornamental designs are coming together in their studio’s examples of a Gesamtkunstwerk. This studio in the Renaissance spirit is where traditional and modern techniques are combined to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. Here, craftsmanship is more important than quantity and extreme designs take precedence over middle-of-the road options. About twenty-five guilds are represented in Studio Job’s lab: from traditional craftsmen such as sculptors, furniture makers, painters and specialists in casting bronze or making stained-glass windows to modern professionals who are adept with lasers and 3D printing. Works by Studio Job can be found in more than forty museums around the world. The design duo have had dozens of solo exhibitions. They also regularly act as curators, as they did recently for the New York gallery Chamber. Their iconic, heraldic and cartoon-like sculptures are popular with collectors.
