Imagine for a moment if Europeans had taken shop class throughout the 17th and 18th centuries (right before the Baroque period). Then try and envision a couple of jokers smoking way too much weed right before class. Combine these images and you've got a snapshot of the irreverent, over-the-top work being hammered out by Studio Job. Last week we stopped by one of the city's most inspiring showrooms, Moss, to check out the latest work from Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel who make up this Dutch-based design team. As usual, we were completely enamored with their most recent creations and can only describe them as being grandiose with a slightly hand crafted quality, and looking like the furnishings imagined in the design duo's most beloved comic book fantasies. Using a broad spectrum of materials and techniques including paper mache; cast, polished and gilded bronze; laser-cut marquetry; and modeled and hand-painted clay, these artists' rebellious talent is undeniable causing art collector's around the world to get in line for these highly sought-after "Jobs!" We don't know what the hell they're smokin' over there at Studio Jobs-if anything. We just know you'll be high on life after stopping by Moss to check out some of their exceptional limited-edition works. On a completely different note...we've been busy, busy, busy working on our concept for DIFFA's Dining by Design. Running in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Home Show March 26th-30th, this is one of the design industry's premiere events and all of the proceeds go towards such an incredible cause. There's still plenty of time to get your tickets and you can learn more about how to purchase them here. We're excited about our idea and don't want to talk too much about it right now...but we will give you a little hint with the photo below....Enjoy!
