Alt Deutsch Archives Wallpaper by Studio Job
Our ‘print cabinet’ consists of thousands of icons that were individually designed by Nynke. ‘Alt Deutsch’ is a collective name for several patterns created in the period 2005 – 2012. The drawings that were used for this theme were drafted with the same approach (emphasizing the outline). In 2006, for example, we designed Underworld for a public project, and in 2009, ING commissioned The Gospel. We also designed a number of new icons for The Book of Job in 2010. Adding these themes together created a mash-up. We first used this method of composition for the hand-painted furniture series Alt Deutsch in 2012.
7 Designs from the library of Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel of Studio Job were selected for the collection “Archives Wallpaper by Studio Job”. The collection reflects a retrospect of the history of Studio Job. They used archetypical drawings and these universal symbols are combined as iconigraphic elements for patterns, compositions and embossing, ultimately creating 6 designs.
This collection of Studio Job won the Editor’s award at ICFF New York in 2014
