Studio Job was one of the brightest stars at 2016’s Design Miami; their “Tree of Life” sculpture was installed in front of Rem Koolhaas and OMA’s Faena Forum. The sculpture is the only of its kind, made from polished bronze, brass, aluminum and red marble, dotted with Swarovski crystals, created by the ingenious duo as a tribute to the famous goldsmith, Johann Melchior Dinglinger. The imaginative, expertly executed work stands out against Forum’s achromatic façade, which resembles Adalberto Libera’s Colosseo Quadrato in Rome. The Antwerp-based studio displayed some of its most iconic pieces inside the Faena Hotel, including the bronze ‘Pan’ mirror, the ‘Car Crash’ sculpture, “engulfed” in flames and smoke, and the prefect reproduction of a Crisco can.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
