Prof. Dr. Katelijn Quartier
Retail Design Lab / Hasselt University, Academic director / Professor in retail design at the Faculty of Architecture
Katelijn Quartier is a Professor in retail design at the Faculty of Architecture and Arts of Hasselt University, where she is also the academic director of the Retail Design Lab knowledge center. We are researching what the store of tomorrow should look like, what the role of design and other spatial cues play in it, and what the role of the physical store should be as such. Starting from scientific insights, moving the discussion from taste to science, Katelijn has advised Belgian and international retail chains to improve their store experience. She has just finished writing a book "The big book of retail design" which will be published in June.
