Studio Job * Autobiographical Train Crash Table

The past Design Miami/Basel 2015 show to the world different explorations of points of view. In the same scene we met with the Belgian artists Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel of Studio Job. Who symbolizes their romantic break-up in a “purely autobiographical” way, as a head-on collision between two steam trains.

The medium that they used to explore their vision came like a sculpture who symbolises the end of a nearly 20-year-long love relation between Nynke and Job like soul mates.

“Although still creative partners, the energy caused by this abrupt ending is also the beginning of a new direction in our lives and an important inspiration for new work,” said Job Smeets.

The piece, made of polished bronze, depicts the moment just after the crash, with both front engine cars crumpled and the carriages behind flailing from the force, a massive impact creating an enormous amount of energy. In the the top the piece are a cloud is flattened to create the 90-centimetre-high table surface, while the train tracks form a level base.

The steam produced by the locomotives is merged into a single cloud, gilded with 24-karat gold over the billowing shapes.

In the same floor, we can find a collection of cast-broze and homeware itemsfurniture that the Studio created to represent the excessive tastes of American tycoons and Russian oligarchs.

Like the cabinet from the range, the Robber Baron buffet has a large hole through its centre, surrounded by a faceted black surface with small compartments located behind doors at either end of the unit, which is covered in textured polished bronze and gold gilding.
