Studio Job Cabinet

Netherlands

2006

A Two Door Cabinet of Macassar Ebony Inlaid with Bird’s Eye Maple
Designed by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel working under the name of 'Studio Job'

Number 4 from a Limited Edition of Six

Height 170 cm width 120 cm depth 50 cm

Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel are a young and inventive Belgian/Dutch couple who produce museum quality pieces in small editions that transcend the realm of furnishings, using traditional hand crafted techniques reminiscent of the highly accomplished guild work of the ‘Arts and Crafts’ movement and ‘Art Deco’ masters like Jacques Ruhlmann.

This cabinet follows in the footsteps of their design heroes, mostly fellow fantasists, such as Carlo Bugatti and Piero Fornasetti. Job Smeets explains “we inhabit the space betweeen art and design, function and sculpture”.

A single piece from this collection was included in 2009 at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in the exhibition "Telling Tales", which featured work by a generation of internationally regarded designers and explored the narrative potential of objects - connecting the past with the present.

In 2007 Studio Job’s work was exhibited in the Starck Pavilion of the Groningen Museum where it was juxtaposed with select works of art from the Museum’s Oriental Applied Art collection. Chinese and Japanese porcelain, lacquer-work, wood carving and carved ivory formed a surprising combination with the modern and distinctive designs of Smeets and Tynagel.
