LDF16: Studio Job at Bisazza

A walk down Sloane Avenue never fails to please SEEN’s senses. If you’re down there yourself, check out Bisazza for the most beautiful designs in tile form; wood, glass and ceramic. SEEN was there to view the new tiles on display by Studio Job, whose singular reinterpretation of parquet flooring epitomises the Belgian design duo’s motto of ‘New Renaissance’.

A walk down Sloane Avenue never fails to please SEEN’s senses. If you’re down there yourself, check out Bisazza for the most beautiful designs in tile form; wood, glass and ceramic.

Unafraid to create once-in-a-lifetime objects, their work is popular with collectors and encapsulates an increasingly personal and humorous style. Job Smeets spoke of knowing more or less what Studio Job would create for a client within 5 minutes of hearing the brief. As partner Nynke Tynagel says, their new collection seeks to ‘twist natural colour into artificial, engraved with the unexpected…’

‘Wood’, the new collection premiering at Bisazza, comprises 6 new geometrical and tromp l’oeil patterns: Cannage, Plissage, Bloc, Zig Zag and Escalier, all of which team natural tones with bright colours, combining them with different-shaped elements in wood. The tromp l‘oeil was most effective, tricking the eye with perspective but creating a beautiful uncluttered space, reminiscent indeed of Renaissance paintings.

SEEN’s personal favourite was the Gingham décor, where small laser-engraved animal skeletons lie spread on a coloured checkerboard. These images are playful and engaging, as though fossils had been found in the layers of wood. Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel have combined technique, science and ornament to create Gesamtkunstwerk, which translates as ‘all embracing art form’, making them one of the most influential design teams working today and the perfect collaborators for Bisazza, one of the top luxury brands world-wide.

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
