Charlotte Jacob


Welcome to my documentation page for Fabricademy 2023-24. I am taking part in the program from Green Fabric atelier in Brussels, Belgium. This page will be a research diary updated every week. My main interests by starting this journey are Textile Design, Natural Colors, and Generative 3D Modeling.

About me

My name is Charlotte Jacob. I am a french Designer based in Brussels. I am currently dividing my weeks between Brussels and Paris as a free-lancer.

My background

I was born in Paris, and I studied Scenography & Tangible Interfaces Design in Nantes, France. This gave me the opportunitie to do internships in Brussels and Tokyo at Interior Architecture and Scenography Studios in 2014 & 2015. This is where I discovered and mainly enjoyed Materials Design. Then I did an internship in a biotech start-up producing natural light with marine bacterias in 2017, and worked few months in Paris on Scenography competitions projects.

Previous work

I moved to Belgium 5 years ago to work as a Designer for a flat glass industrial group. This is where I discovered the Fablabs philosophy and network, by becoming responsible of a small internal prototyping space. This is also where I developed a specialization in Color & Materials Design, and a deep interest in exploration of hard materials. I work for now as a consultant in this field for Transportation & Interior Design companies.

Next to work, I am passionated about Sewing & Silkscreen Printing, and I am very happy to open up other horizons of exploration in Textile Design and soft materials by joining Fabricademy :)

Thin Glass collections

Here is an overview of thin glass collections that I developed as part of my former work, to initiate a dialogue between researchers and Automotive Designers. The aim was to propose a light and durable in time alternative of plastic interior displays & trims in the Mobility sector. I used some inspirational moodboards starting the project, with Pinterest and Miro tools.

get inspired!

These references are available in a open Miro board with other weeks inspirations : INSPIRATIONS

And here are some good books on CMF Design : CMF Design Radical Matter
