Job Smeets was born in 1970 in Belgium and studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven from '90 to '95. He established his own Studio Job in 1998. Nynke Tynagel was born in 1977 in the Netherlands and joined Job after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2000."Our design is about freedom. We think that design is a universal language spoken with shapes instead of words. In our design the important interaction is between onlooker and object. By looking at our objects, the onlooker looks directly into our eyes. In this sense our work is like a diary. Very intuitive and direct, we try to translate our experiences and ideas into an object or a collection."
