WELCOME AT THE FIRST POST-LOCKDOWN DESIGN EVENT
RECONNECT WITH DESIGN IN PERSON
THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL.
BUY LOCAL. SUPPORT LOCAL ECONOMY AND CREATIVES.
In this turbulent age we get new and better insights in our life and our priorities become more clear. One of the conclusions is the importance to think global and act local. The more we can do for our own community, the better. The creative industry is important for the Belgian economy, innovation, culture and identity. The fashion and design sectors provides work in terms of design, production, presentation, promotion, sales and distribution. It is essential that these activities will stay and evolve in Belgium as much as possible (at least the creative process). In order to emphasize this importance the initiative IkKoopBelgisch / J’AchteBelge (Buy Belgian) has been established by Flanders DC (Districts of Creativity), MAD (Brussels fashion and design platform) and WBDM (Wallonie Bruxelles Design Mode). On www.ikkoopbelgisch.be you can discover Belgian talent.
WELFARE SHOULD BE ABOUT QUALITY, CREATIVITY AND
ALLOWING TO CONSUME AND PRODUCE IN DIGNITY.
Brussels Design September, Flanders DC, and Wallonie Design are proud to present the second Contemporary Design Market, powered by Ik Koop Belgisch / J’achète Belge (I Buy Belgian). It will take place at the same time as the Brussels Design Market, the largest event dedicated to 20th century design, which attracts more than 7000 visitors! A special area will be dedicated to contemporary design.
Contemporary Design Market is an exclusive presentation and sale moment for well-known Belgian based designers and upcoming Belgian based talents working in different design disciplines with various materials.
As a part of the Design September program, Contemporary Design Market is a unique moment to discover, meet and buy Belgian design. Belgian design is underrated. Professionals, collectors, advisors, (interior)architects and other design lovers are invited to discover a selection of the contemporary design scene.
Carefully selected by a committee of design experts, designers will showcase their last creations. These contemporary design pieces will be showcased for a weekend in one single location:
Since March (Collectible Brussels) there has not been a physical presentation of contemporary design in Belgium and Contemporary Design Market will probably be the last of 2020 (eg. Interieur Kortrijk was cancelled).
