Soulmates Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000. This studio was established in the Renaissance spirit - where traditional and modern techniques are combined to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. The pair started the studio after graduating from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven and in the fifteen years since then, they have moved towards being the contemporary pioneers of personal expression. Technique, science and ornamental designs come together in Studio Job’s work as examples of what can be described as Gesamtkunstwerk - a total art work or an all embracing art form. Job Smeets likes to call their style ‘New Gothic’, with perfectionism and uniqueness as its key features. Nynke Tynagel describes it as a symphony orchestra where a cohesive piece of music is created from an abundance of different sounds. Proclaimed one of the most influential design teams by the Financial Times, Studio Job is passionate about building up an oeuvre that is becoming increasingly extravagant in its details and increasingly personal.
Our work is inspired by Life itself and the heroes of our youth: David Bowie, Miffy, Roy Lichtenstein, The Green Vault, Warhol and many others... Now, for the first time, our iconic artwork has been applied to 7 Slamp lamps; unlike other design objects, the good vibrations of this shining soul emanate from within. Light is life, and this new collection “The Lightning Archives of Studio Job” is a superduper scoop! Collect them all !
The Lightning Archives' extraordinary collection is a pop tribute to Slamp design. At the heart of this collection is the iconic Slamp Tube, a symbol of innovation and artistry. Studio Job pays homage to this piece by giving it new life and context. With their bold shapes, intricate details and enchanting light diffusion, the Lightning Archives captivate and enrich the space like a true sculpture. It is a testament to the enduring legacy of the Slamp Tube, reinvented for a new era of design excellence
