At the intersection of design, entertainment and the visual arts, JB creates functional furniture, immersive installations and sculptures inspired by fantasy, science fiction and digital culture. These hand-crafted objects, made from wood, cardboard, tape, and paint, serve as tangible artifacts from the surreal worlds he brings to life through his drawings and writings.

JB’s projects often incorporate fictional stories blending fantasy with contemporary elements. Creating a link between imagination and reality, JB aims to take his audience on a journey. With a touch of humor, he explores themes such as construction, DIY, and consumer habits, offering a subtle commentary on our everyday lives.

Over time, he has developed his own working method, mixing raw materials, vibrant colors and graphical forms. He transforms scavenged material into playful creations that challenge conventional industrial standards, advocating for a more manual and intuitive approach to craftsmanship.

JB graduated with a BA in Man & Leisure from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2020. His work has been exhibited mainly in Europe, with showcases in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, and more. Versatile and adaptable, JB has collaborated with notable companies, including a window display design for Hermès and repurposing leftover wood from Piet Hein Eek to construct a shed using duct tape.
