Studio


Based in brussels, Loudordesign studio is an industrial design office opened in 2003 by Jean-François D'Or.



Loudordesign studio is an industrial design agency that focuses on duality and complementarity of creative and pragmatical solutions. We work for industries from conceptual idea to production via methodological development. This global process applies to all consumer goods produced by industries. Product design strategy : Analysis - Innovation - Synthesis - Conception - Development - Production.


Design is a matter of harmony, an eye and a tool for quality and identity of product. It is a central factor of innovatie technologies and a crucial factor of cultural and economic exchange. Industrial design seeks to assess structural, organisational, functional, expressive and economic relationships in order to establish the multi-faceted qualities of objects.


Jean-François D'Or


His simple, unpretentious, logical objects appeal as much on for their evident, clearly perceptible design as well as their discrete poetry.



Jean-François D’Or is graduated in industrial design at ENSAV La Cambre Brussels in 1998 since which time he has built up solid and varied experience. Following a project in New York lasting several months, he was taken on by Light brand where he worked closely with established and demanding designers such as Maarten Van Severen and Hans De Pelsmacker. In 2003, he set up his own industrial design studio.


His approach takes account of company imperatives as well as user needs and is tempered by the desire to reach a market; his products set out to enrich our environment. Exploring numerous materials, Jean-François D’Or brings out their beauty without ostentation. His simple, unpretentious, logical objects appeal as much on for their evident, clearly perceptible design as well as their discrete poetry.


Voted Belgian designer of the year in 2013, Jean-François D’Or continues on a steady path of flawless rigour.
