First launched by Studio Job in Milan in 2011, this tall metal cabinet in a matte finish is fitted with six shelves, four of which are half the depth of the cabinet itself and can be adjusted according to requirement. An enormous bronze key left visible out of a similarly oversized lock, transforms the functional object into a sophisticated and creative piece, wholly in line with Studio Job's aesthetic.

About Studio Job
Based in Antwerp and the Netherlands, Studio Job, a design duo founded over a decade ago by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, produces one-off pieces of sculptural furniture that share little with the reigning aesthetic of minimalism and spareness. Their cast bronze works—tables whose surfaces are models of inverted cathedrals, lamps shaped like the Eiffel Tower—are laser cut for minute detailing and exquisite surface texture. Often described as “neo-gothic,” Studio Job’s pieces are fanciful without being kitschy.
