studio job & pieke bergmans for dilmos

for milan design week 2010, the dutch-belgian studio job and the dutch pieke bergmans, in association with italian gallery dilmos will present ‘wonderlamp’, a collection of 7 light objects.

 

both pieke bergmans and studio job work with archetypal materials. studio job creates monumental objects made of cast bronze, while bergmans has made a name for herself developing mouth-blown crystal forms which coagulate into fluid forms. these are the points of departure for their collaboration ‘wonderlamp’, in which bergmans’ large glass light bulbs are linked to seven bronze objects from studio job. the seven playful, but monumental implements stir fantasy and imagination. where bergmans’ objects seek correlation with reality, studio job creates a fantasy world full of surrealistic elements. these differences offer enough points of contact for an interesting exchange of ideas.

  • studio job is not belgian but dutch

    tdv says:
  • aren’t they established in Anvers?

    anyway this is great!

    franz says:
  • studio job was established and is still based in antwerp, belgium.
    job smeets is of belgian descent, while nynke tynagel is dutch.
    they also have an office in the netherlands.

    andrea/designboom says:
  • Seems like an homage to Michael Craig-Martin.

    Joseph says:
  • studio job actually evolved from a facebook group called ‘lets see what sells well at designart auctions’ and they went on from there.
    designboom, this isnt necessarily a criticism of that statement of intent, but I realise that opinions (especially those requiring a modicum of humour) need censoring, so please go ahead 🙂

    ifpossible says:
  • oh no, theres another one…:-)

    atwerp says:
  • Wonder if they have ever seen this?

    Very similar idea.
