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.
