About:My name is Jielt Gregoire, design enthusiast with a strong interest for materials and manufacturing techniques. BIO To give this passion a proper fundament I obtained a Professional Bachelor “Industrial Product Design” at the academy of Howest in Kortrijk. I studied in The Hague during this period on a Erasmus exchange. While in The Hague I got to know, work and live with people from around the world. This was a very inspiring period where I could pick my own curriculum. I focused on self-reflection, prototyping, designing and durability. After receiving my degree in 2011 I did an additional Bachelor of “Furniture Design” at Thomas More University College in Mechelen where I made “Trigger the ceramic lounger”. This bachelor also called VOMO, is unique in the BeNeLux. The admission is very competitive and allows only 20 students annually. From 2012 until 2014 I have worked at BHOOM, a high-end Belgian design firm specialized in interior and product designing where I learned a lot about shaping, proportions and improved my CAD skills. In 2015 I got the opportunity to do an additional internship at Atelier Ted Noten, the ‘enfant terrible’ of the international jewelry world which is based in Amsterdam. Now? Designer for hire!
