“Chess Piece,” designed for Jeff Koons, combines references to the artist’s work: his blown up sculptures of ordinary objects such as balloon animals, and the vacuum cleaners he placed in fluorescent-lit plexiglass boxes. Studio Job have used a Nilfisk GM 80 P vacuum as a bust, available in either bronze or brass. Job said, “I love Jeff Koons and I love Nilfisk. It’s such a high quality vacuum cleaner!” To mimic Koons’ lustrous surfaces, Studio Job have made the horse’s head of polished alloy, bronze or brass, like the Hoover.When the vacuum is switched on, the horse’s eyes light up as it sniffs through its nostrils.
