Studio Job Will Celebrate 20th Anniversary At Milan Design Week 2019 ⇒ Founded in 1998 by Job Smeets, Studio Job combines traditional and modern techniques to produce unique art pieces. Experimental but expressive, highly specific but entirely universal, Studio Job has crafted an incredible body of work that draws upon the classical, popular and contemporary design. The work created by Studio Job is regal even in its imagery. At Milan Design Week 2019, the studio will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. CovetED brings you what you can’t miss at the brand’s celebration.
Studio Job are masters of conceptual and contemporary design. The results range from unique bronze artwork in the Metropolitan Museum, New York, to a royal stamp featuring the Dutch King (forty million pieces produced); from the unique life-size bronze sculptures on Miami Beach, to the one-off Wunderkammer curiosity cabinet that Studio Job produced for Swarovski in Innsbruck. All Studio Job projects are distinguished by a love of detail, freedom of expression and blend of 2D and 3D. With more than 400 exhibitions, including solo shows, around the world Studio Job’s work can be found in many important museum collections.
