Studio Job Screen From The 'Perished' Collection

Netherlands

2006

A Four Fold Screen of Macassar Ebony Inlaid with Bird's Eye Maple

Designed by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel working under the name of 'Studio Job'

Width 200 cm height 171 cm depth 5 cm (78.75 x 67.5 x 2 in)The width of each panel 50 cm (19.75 in)

A single bench from the collection was included in 2009 at the Victoria and 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.

Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel are a young and inventive Belgian/Dutch couple working under the name of "Studio Job". They 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 screen 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 between art and design, function and sculpture".
