Italian brand Bisazza launches new Wood collection by Studio Job. With their unmistakable stylistic sense and usual wry humour, the Dutch designer duo put their personal stamp on the classic parquet.
The new Wood collection is an eccentric interpretation of classic parquet, revealing the versatility and creativity of the brand. Six the new patterns included in the new series characterized by 3D geometries and trompe l'oeil: Cannage, Plissage, Bloc, Zig Zag and Escalier, pair natural tones with brilliant colours and combine them with different-shaped elements in wood; in the Gingham décor, small, laser-engraved animal skeletons - typical figures in Studio Job’s iconographic language - stand out against a coloured checkerboard, reminiscent of the classic English pattern of squares.

“Knock on Wood! A new material, the same principle; arrange geometric shapes into pattern, compose elements into illustration, turning flat into 3-D, trompe-l’oeil illusions. Twist natural colour into artificial, engraved with the unexpected, a contemporary approach of wooden flooring.”, says Nynke Tynagel from Studio Job.

Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel founded Studio Job in 2000. This studio was established in the Renaissance spirit - where traditional and modern techniques are combined to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. The pair started the studio after graduating from the Dutch Design Academy in Eindhoven and in the fifteen years since then, they have moved towards being the contemporary pioneers of personal expression. Technique, science and ornamental designs come together in Studio Job’s work as examples of what can be described as Gesamtkunstwerk - a total art work or an all embracing art form. www.bisazza.com, www.studiojob.be
