Studio Job founders
Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel raided their archive and used existing
drawings, icons, images and patterns to create unique nine-metre running
compositions without any repetition, for the Archives wallpaper
collection for NLXL.
The collection comprises seven designs: Industry, Labyrinth, Perished,
Alt Deutsch, L’Afrique and Withered Flowers, which is available in both
monochrome or colour. Made from a non-woven paper with a matte finish,
each roll is nine metres by 48.7 centimetres.
"Can you imagine what it feels like to browse through the archives of
Studio Job if you love art?" says Rick Vintage, founder of NLXL. "We
felt like children before Christmas."
"This collaboration has brought NLXL to a whole new level. Job Smeets
has created stunning sets for the promotional photos as well as our
showroom in Milan during Salone del Mobile, so the Studio Job
craftsmanship is present in every detail of this presentation," he
"The plain white wall behind a painting is an idea from modernism," said
Smeets. "In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, it was not
uncommon to present art on very ornamented silk wallpaper. But let me
put it another way: with this wallpaper you no longer need any
paintings. Viewed in this way, per running metre, it is relatively cheap
Archives will be at the NLXL Milan showroom during Milan Design Week from Monday 7 April to Sunday 13 April 2014, 10am – 9pm, at Via Savona 35, Milan.
