The decoration created by Studio Job for the Garybaldi Tin transforms a commonly used container into a special object. A box to fill with whatever you desire, and then leave on show to admire like a work of art and design.
The Garybaldi Tin is a storage box whose name is a tribute to the first biscuits packed in metal boxes, created on the occasion of Italian general's visit to the United Kingdom, in 1854. Artist-designers, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel have an avant-garde language that digs into European cultural and iconographic tradition. "European pop", says Smeets, "allows us to wander between very different stylistic references, the result of profoundly different eras". The intricate decoration of the Garybaldi Tin invites you to get lost in this extraordinary reinterpretation of "European pop".
