Scary stuff, Mexico! is the name of a massive hit of a Singer called ‘Zangeres zonder naam’ (‘Singer with no name’). She was very well known in the Low Countries and used to live in the village of Stramproy, not far from where we lived. So, when I was a little boy i sometimes passed by her villa trying to get a glimpse. But her velvet curtains were always closed. Unfortunately she died in the nineties.
Studio Job, founded in 2000 by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, is based in Antwerp and Amsterdam. Both graduated from the Eindhoven Design Academy, from the beginning their collaboration leads to the creation of unique pieces and limited edition works of great suggestion and expressive force.
Job and Nynke both refer to both traditional and avant-garde culture, moving from the natural to the artificial world. Studio Job’s work can be found in more than forty museums all over the world. The two designers have had over eighty solo shows all over the world. Their iconic, heraldic and cartoon sculptures are appreciated by collectors.
