Soulmates Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000. Traditional and modern techniques are combined in their renaissance style to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. In Studio Job, craftsmanship takes precendence over quantity and elaborate designs are favoured over middle-of-the road products. They started the studio after graduating from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven and have since developed into contemporary pioneers of personal expression. Technique, science and ornamental designs come together in Studio Job’s examples of Gesamtkunstwerk, 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.
