Catalogue Note

The provocative and tongue-in cheek designs of Rotterdam-based Studio Job, founded by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel are redefining applied arts for the contemporary age. Combining 17th century marquetry with 21st century laser cutting technology, each piece on the Perished Cabinet is painstakingly applied to create an extremely graphic and perfectly symmetrical synthesis of past meeting present.
