Milan 2013: Belgian artists Studio Job will present a desk with a golden nose for a drawer handle as part of a collection for Dutch furniture brand Lensvelt at MOST in Milan this week.

Another piece in the Job Office collection for Lensvelt is the Job Buffet, a white powder-coated metal cabinet with two doors and a chrome-plated aluminium key that locks it.
The Job Desk also makes use of white powder-coated metal for its top and legs, but instead of a key to open the slim drawer, the user must pull on the golden nose.

The two Job Tables are enlarged versions of the Job Desk.

The Job Desk Lamp uses LED bulbs and features an oversized golden switch under its powder-coated metal shade.

Each piece in the collection is available in a range of colours: white, green, grey, dark grey, black, red, yellow and blue.

"Over time, Hans Lensvelt has proven to be an ingenious product developer who consistently transforms our unconventional designs into comprehensive functional products, yet intricately maintaining a sense of wit," said designer Job Smeets. "Our collaboration constitutes sustainable office furniture, valuing the importance of functionality and high-quality objects that represent their own identity and humour."
The collection is an extension of the Job Cabinet launched by Studio Job in Milan last year – a metal cabinet with a single door that also comes with a gold-coloured key.
