Giel Dedeurwaerder

Industrial designer

In 2011 Giel graduated from the Hogeschool West-Vlaanderen (Belgium) in Kortrijk, with specialisation in Industrial product design.
There, he founded a four-student-collective office which has worked for many different companies.

After his studies, Giel has collaborated with Mathieu Cornelis and Gilles Catry to start their own design studio, named fordesign. This helped them to develop and define their skills as designers. After four years of service (including such clients as Bastalpe, Lékué, WuWei, MDR, …) Giel is continuing to work at his own studio and new collectives.

An example includes Studio Ruben where he searches for a combination of artwork and design together with his girlfriend Liesbet Vanessche. Giel is developed as a designer with a broad perspective on many different areas. In every phase of a designing process he is always looking for functionality, philosophy and proportions.
One can see the influence of this thinking process in the style and objects that come from his work.

Moments of creations


Product Analyse & Consultancy

Every product development starts with analyzing the market and define the product scope and goals.
It is important to know the company values and processes of our clients. With a brainstorm we trigger our customers to think different and let them be part of the design process.

Concept Generation

After an analysis of the company’s needs, we start with generating new concepts and ideas. These concepts will be shown step by step in well-documented files and drawings. If needed prototypes can be provided.

Product Development

When the concept generation is done, we are able to search and adjust the concept until it fits the company needs. Technical drawings and 3D modeling is part of our job! When the product is completely finished For will blend all the info together in a document and present this to our customer.

Visualisation & Graphic Design

Every good product needs good packaging and branding. After developing the product, we can provide our clients with special made packaging and good realistic images, which they can use to convince their own clients. We can also provide logos and graphical work in line with the designed product.
