Studio Job's brand new headquarters is located in Antwerp, Belgium and the firm's space is strongly characterized by maximalist aesthetics. As minimalism has dominated the interior design world for quite some time now, overbearing arrangements are beginning to arise as a loud protest against the clean and the orderly. This approach boasts a type of artistic quality that minimalism could never possibly communicate. From the busy prints of the mismatched circular carpets to the furniture that is influenced by contradictory creative movements, the maximalist aesthetic will surely stimulate the imagination. In fact, the design of Studio Job's new space is described by the company's founder, Job Smeets, as "a visual assault."
While minimalism opens up pathways of creativity by way of "line and color," maximalist aesthetics bring about a new approach to design with an irresistible challenge.
