Tâchez de garder toujours un morceau de ciel au-dessus de votre vie, petit garçon, ajoutait-il en se tournant vers moi. Vous avez une jolie âme, d’une qualité rare, une nature d’artiste, ne la laissez pas manquer de ce qu’il lui faut.

the following expertise
gathered around Europe:
As a strategic design engineer, Cédric believes in the application of design methodologies that combine innovation, research, management and design. He takes a very holistic (the big picture) and multi-disciplinary approach, following a development process that starts with a careful consideration of market, competitive environment, company resources, brand image, and the style and function of the new product or service to be created. This results in design decisions made on the basis of facts rather than aesthetics or intuition.
After having completed a bachelor degree in Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University Delft, Cédric pursued the development of his design expertise with a master in luxury brand management at Domus Academy Milan, where his thesis on ‘circular economy for the luxury leather goods industry’ received the highest honour. Afterwards he continued to develop his personal style and fashion skills at the renowned fashion department of the Antwerp Royal Academy of Arts.
