Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. At once highly specific and yet entirely universal, personally expressive and yet experimental, Studio Job has crafted a body of work that draws upon classical, popular and contemporary design and highly visual and sculptural art.
Originally designed for ‘Automobile,’ by Studio Job, ‘L’Afrique Fabric’ by historic Dutch manufacturer Vlisco consists of traditional African iconography swallowed by a jungle of foliage. The effect is a patterned palimpsest, familiar and mysterious at the same time. A limited edition of 6 yards wax block printed fabric, packed in an individually made wooden collectors box.
