Studio Job was established in 2000 by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, who both studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. Far and away from the minimalism that characterizes modern industrial desgn, Studio Job is foremost renowned for the monumentalism and the opulence of its creations. A wide array of diverse influences fueled the fires of creation, from cartoons to historic and heraldic motifs, to period furniture, and simple everyday objects, such as kitchen utensils.
The duo's creative approach is classed now and then as “Neobaroque” or a part of “Mannerism”; it applies ironic alienation and considers itself more in line with the tradition of decorative art than with expressive postmodernism. The works of Studio Job can be seen in many museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Louvre in Paris, and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
