Studio Job - Tit Lamp

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.

Tit Lamp

These hand-blown Murano glass and a gold-plated light fittings were designed by Studio Job for historic Italian historic manufacturer Vennini as part of their ‘Mae West’ series. The two types, straight tit lamp hangs from the ceiling, while the tilted version droops across walls each in slightly differing, as each piece is hand blown.

The idea for the 'Tit Lamp' is based on Job's visit to the Italian Murano glass blowing factory, "I needed new lights quickly, and saw the glassblowers had nude magazine pin-ups on the wall of the workshop, so I thought the guys would be motivated to make them if they were women's tits"

Freud associated the breast with excess, as that which is necessary but exceeds what is needed. Studio Job have gone beyond the 'good' taste of gentlemen's clubs, transforming the room into a dream landscape in which fantasy and functionality come together.
