The first major US retrospective of Dutch/Belgian design duo Studio Job is as mad as advertised – in a good way. Studio Job has created a wonderland of their most iconic pieces over two floors of the Museum of Art and Design, including some pieces specially commissioned for Chelsea gallery Chamber.
“Horse Bust Chess Piece” is a personal favorite, which combines a Nilfisk vacuum cleaner with a horse head sculpture. A modern day centaur, if you will. Turn the vacuum on (yes, it works!) and the horse’s eyes glow red, letting you know that the beast inside has awakened.
A few other notable pieces steal the show as well, including significantly more low tech pieces from the Bavaria series and parquet floors from a runway show the duo designed for Viktor & Rolf (old friends from home.) With MAD House, Studio Job has done what they do best – and brought the kitsch in a big way.
