Formerly an aspiring cartoonist, he’s described this approach as ligne claire — a drawing style defined by the boldness and simplicity of its outlines. Since founding Sylvain Willenz Design Office 2004, Willenz has won numerous international awards from iF, Red Dot and many others. In 2009, he was named Belgian Designer of the year, and in 2021, produced the Print collection with RBW.

This year, we invited Hancocks to launch RBW’s visual artist residency, a new series of artist and designer collaborations aimed at creating unique visual experiences. As our first resident, Hancocks designed three immersive and stunningly detailed fictional environments—two workspaces and one resort—for RBW XR, our 360-degree, extended reality platform for viewing our products in situ. Here, Hancocks walks us through his subconscious approach to design, and describes the perks of cross-disciplinary collaboration.
