Design duo Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel work together under the name Studio Job. For more than a decade they’ ve amazed international audiences with the most outrageous of designs.

The work of Studio Job is a creative investigation into the relationship that people have with objects and the symbolic or narrative value that they attach to them.

Studio Job’s distinctly ambiguous work has caused a great deal of debate. Nonetheless, for Job the discussion of whether they create art or design is finally settled.
