Art Wallpaper from Studio Job
Dutch Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, better known as Studio Studio Job, created a unique line of wallpaper Archives for Dutch brand NLXL, using their past achievements. The pictures, images and patterns in the wallpaper design were pulled out from the archives of the studio, which they have previously been used for decorating furniture and interior. These previous artworks formed the basis of the unique compositions, which do not have a single repeat.
Unique Art Wallpaper from Studio Job
Alt Deutsch from Archives collection of wallpaper by Studio Job
Works of the founders of the studio Job Smeets и Nynke Tynagel can be bought in furniture stores, and seen in galleries of contemporary art. The collection includes seven patterns: Industry, Labyrinth, Perished, Alt Deutsch, L’Afrique and Withered Flowers – in colors and monochrome.
As Job Smeets said, you no longer need any pictures with this wallpaper. From this viewpoint, it is a relatively cheap art.
Wallpaper is made of non-woven paper with a matte finish. Each roll is about 30 feet long and 20 inches wide. The Archives collection was presented during Milan Design Week, from 7 to 13 April 2014, at the Milan showroom of NLXL.
Artworks by the Studio Job are endowed with artistry. They are teetering on the intersection of design and art. The wallpaper was printed without a single sample.
Studio Job was founded in 2000 by Academy Eindhoven graduate Job Smeets. Later the graphic designer Nynke Tynagel joined him. Design studio assets are located in Belgium and the Netherlands. Studio Job remains faithful to old craft traditions, creating conceptual objects of precious materials.
According to the designers, the principles of the studio are more consistent with traditional notions of the guild, rather than mass production. Their ironic iconography is both heraldic and cartoonish; simultaneously monumental and naive. The studio successfully cooperates with brands such as Swarovski, Bisazza, Venini, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, Moooi and others. Personal exhibitions of the studio were held in New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Milan, Geneva, Miami and Basel.
