Perished Archives Wallpaper
Founded in 2000 by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven now based in Antwerp and Amsterdam.
Opulent, intricate and ironic, Studio Job combine an extraordinarily high level of craftsmanship with extreme ornamentation. They reference both the traditional and the topical, the organic and the artificial. This narrative conveys a tension between the good and the bad exploring all facets of each. The Studio Job iconography is at once heraldic and cartoonlike, expressive and yet somehow primitive. Their style is placed within an enigmatic, intellectual framework by the number and complexity of symbols and signifiers it conveys. Studio Job’s work is widely collected both in the private and public sectors. Their designs have been shown in the important galleries, fairs and are added to more than 40 international museum collections.
Studio Job has collaberated with the creative wallpaper manufacturers NLXL to produce the Archives Collection with includes an eclectic mix of wallpaper designs.
