Born in Namibia to a Belgian father and a Japanese mother, Jun Gobron grew up to be eager and curious about the world. After graduating from the Free University of Brussels (ULB) with an Economic Sciences degree and gaining a few years of experience at multinational corporations, he decided to make a career transition and become an interior architect and designer.
Passionate about aesthetics, with an enthusiasm for creation and entrepreneurship, Jun Gobron then began studying at the École supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc of Brussels, which awakened his creative eye and innate sensibility.
That enabled him to reveal his talent as a “designer of lightness”, combining the simplicity and streamlining of Japan with the elaborate decoration of Europe.
Reinforced by his well-rounded education, Jun Godron is a pragmatic yet imaginative professional: “I learned a lot about economics, and it helps me in my work on a daily basis. The profession of interior architect or designer is not limited to the creative side… In fact, that’s only a small part of it. Once you get the idea, you have to execute it. You become a sort of project manager. You are responsible for handling various participants, drawing up budgets, planning, and so on,” he states.
With his unique, multicultural perspective and appetite for new aesthetic experiences, Jun Gobron is delighted to join the members of the jury as President and to continue writing the history of the SILMO d’Or awards.
SILMO Paris will run 23 to 26 September 2022 at Paris Nord Villepinte. Welcoming visionaries!
