A Job Well Done

Dutch design duo Job Smeets and Nynke Tynangel of Studio Job create seemingly functional objects with sarcastic wit and dark undertones.  Their pieces often contain visual and verbal puns that are at once satirical and charming.  They are best known in America for their “Biscuit”  collection, stark white bique porcelain dishes embossed with allegorical icons and images of fantasy, that they designed for Royal Tichelaar Makkum.

The “Robber Barons” collection makes household objects out of five landmarks of industrial revolution greed and corruption while linking them to contemporary civilization.
