Studio Job

Graduates of the renowned Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel who both live as well as work together. From the beginning, their collaboration resulted in highly expressive, usually one-off or limited-edition works, often sculpt in bronze or, casted in ceramics or finely constructed in marquetry. Employing iconographic, pan-historic imagery which can be in the same moment both heraldic as well as cartoon- like, the results are consistently monumental and yet somehow primitive, and generally read neo-renaissance, clearly fantasist, and certainly more mannerist than modernist. They started collaborating with Venini in 2010.
