during design miami / basel 2014gallery mitterrand+cramer presents ‘detour’ series, a collection of marble objects designed by studio job for swiss company stonetouCH. the range of pieces reference roadwork iconography, and is conceptually in line with the creative studio’s previous series such as ‘craft’ (2001), ‘farm’ (2007) and ‘homework’ (2008). this new works features a cabinet, a set of lamps, a table and a mirror. ‘the rich marble was the stimulus to explore a ‘minimal’ or ‘rational’ approach,’ explain job smeets and nynke tynagel of studio job.

‘within our oeuvre, this is a fresh revival of an older frequency. still, rational or not, visually and sculpturally we were interested in combining the marble with other materials like glass or bronze (of course). still, minimal or not, we found it relevant to add ‘color’ to this work by combining different marble sorts within the collection and within the object itself,’ they add.
