“The driving force behind Chamber is to elevate the status of designed objects through the communication of their narratives. I am as fascinated by the stories behind the objects as I am by the stories of collectors who share in this passion. Their collectibles mean something to them, bring something fresh to their lives and speak to who they are. Chamber aims to be a destination for these lovers of discovery of the unique,” – Juan Garcia Mosqueda, 2015

Chamber Collection #1 is comprised of 100 edition works of art and design curated by Studio Job. For the inaugural curatorial period, Juan Garcia Mosqueda selected Dutch designers Studio Job to work closely with, alongside a dynamic group of established and emerging designers. The resulting exhibit encompasses a variety of materials and textures, which interplay with one another and contribute to the sense of intimacy and interactivity already offered by Chamber’s unique concept.

The individual stories behind each object are of paramount importance to Garcia Mosqueda and will have a strong presence in the space through video, audio and text by each Curator who will tell the story of the objects through their eyes. Each Chamber collection will be encapsulated in a limited edition catalogue raisonne that will include photographs and process drawings, with text by the Curator. Like the rest of Chamber’s visual identity, the catalogue will be designed by Studio Lin, one of New York’s most respected graphic design shops.

As with each Curator, Job and Nynke Smeets also served as art directors, intimately involved in the concept and execution of many of the pieces. Studio Job will also design a new series of objects for the collection, along with a special edition of their Lensvelt furniture collection introduced at Salone del Mobile in 2013.
