Graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015, Job’s work hinges on a fascination with making – both industrial processes and artisanal techniques fall under his inquisitive gaze. Many of his pieces are the result of challenging established ways of doing things to come up with smart new approaches. His O – Series, for example, uses wood veneer rolled into tubes to create a light yet strong structure, from which he has made a cabinet and floor lamp. Each of the parts are held together without screws or bolds, and combine a clever new idea with an excellence in joinery.
Whereas his Copy Blur Mirror presses metal into a wave-like looking glass, his Metal Skin Cabinet forges wood veneer and sheet metal at a very high temperature to create a surface texture with the touch of metal and the grain of wood. Job’s Glasslab cabinet uses the unexpected strength of glass – here in two giant upside-down test tubes – to hold up a series of metal shelves.
