Charles O. Job
"The ordinary - and a little extra!" is how Charles O. Job states his design principle. He was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and studied architecture and urban design successfully at the Oxford Polytechnic, after which came a period of amassing experience in Paris, London and, with star architect Santiago Calatrava, in Zürich, where he now lives and works. His office has been commissioned by leading international customers in the architecture, interior design, product development, furniture and lighting fields, and has won many design prizes. For Schönbuch he designed the X-Y coat hook - simple in their way, but with that extra-special something.
