The splendid Sala del Cenacolo in the Museum of Science and Technology and the music of Pink Floyd provide the background for an ironic and surreal installation by Studio Job for Lansvelt. Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel present their new office furniture collection, designed for the renowned Dutch brand, surrounded by the 18th-century frescoes and stucco-work of the old monastery refectory. This project is a continuation from Job Cabinet, the metal cabinet they presented two years ago. At the time, the designers called it “an archetypal office cabinet with an enormous polished bronze key that fits into an ingenious giant lock: the perfect symbiosis between industrial mass production and the personal object.”
Without changing course, Studio Job has now put together a whole collection featuring a low cabinet with two doors closed with a huge gilded key; a desk with drawers that open by pulling a gilded, aluminium, nose-shaped knob; a table; and a lamp with a jumbo switch.
