Once again, they want to reinforce the image of Brussels as an attractive and dynamic capital: they will highlight the innovation of their young designers through various events related to Design, in order to enhance the commercial attractiveness of the city.
These few past years, Brussels has incontestably developed itself as the city of Design. Thanks to the talent and the ingeniousness of their designers. The place of Design in the city starts to have its noble letters. Design September always wanted to connect with the city and represent its various exaltations and diversities. The importance of the event and its influence is shaped more and more: design in its most various forms takes an increasingly important place in the daily life of Brussels: urban furniture, installations, lights,…
Furthermore innovations of their designers find its place in the urban landscape. It has contributed in a positive way to the city’s reputation and to its economic and tourist activity. The city of Brussels needs events that put creativity and innovation in the front row. Design September, alongside with the Region Brussels-Capital, the City of Brussels and many institutional and private partners, is proud to contribute to it.
This year, Brussels Design September introduces a couple of new events, especially the creation of the Contemporary Design Market and the launch of five limited editions. There shall be exhibitions by renowned designers in iconic places in the city such as, Horta House, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum, and for the first time the Children’s Museum. This is done to reinforce the cultural offer of this 2019 edition. Brussels Design Market will highlight the image of Brussels, a city of vintage: a vintage route in the city will once again mark the 27th edition of the Brussels Design Market, which is the biggest vintage market in Europe.
The Arts & Crafts itinerary brings a focus this year on ceramics. Workshops and ceramics designers will be highlighted. Moreover a collective exhibition will be presented at the AREA 42 located, Rue des Palais.
Every year, Brussels Design September chooses to showcase an artistic medium, through exhibitions, conferences and an art and craft course. This focus allows us to shed light on the actors in the creative sector, which contributes to the pride of Brussels’ know-how.
The reasons that led us to develop a path around ceramics in Brussels are simple but essential: the development of our creators, the excitement of commercial activity, and the excellent education provided in the Brussels region. Our wish is to give way to the meeting between the work of the Brussels creators and the public. More than 10 workshops and places of creation will open their doors to the public for a weekend where everyone will have the opportunity to present their work methods and creations.
In addition, a group exhibition, located Rue des Palais in AREA 42, will be achieved with Jean-François Declercq.
