As Brussels Design September and Brussels Gallery Weekend take over the Belgian capital, this month is set out to be a true celebration of local designers. Here are TLmag’s highlights of the over 100 events scheduled for this month!
TLmag talks to award-winning designer Satyendra Pakhalé about his multifaceted design philosophy and practice, and how it’s illustrated throughout his first comprehensive monograph ‘Culture Of Creation’ — which will be published in Autumn 2019 through nai010 publishers.
This Brussels studio cultivates a carefully reasoned approach to graphic design. Contemporary, meticulous and rather trendy, the Stoëmp style is centred on experience and ethical practices. TLmag met with Italian-Polish designer-duo Gaetano Licata and Wojciech Szlachta, the source for the most multicultural “stoemp” in the Belgian capital.
Designing fabrics that are exported around the world, these two designers are as close as they are complementary. TLmag meets with half of the otherwise inseparable duo Barbara Repole, who, together with Sébastien Pescarollo, co-founded Belgian label ‘PIECEOFCHIC’.
In a surprising collaboration with Swatch, Joe Tilson combines colourful Venice-inspired imagery for his site-specific installation ‘The Flags’ and releases a special edition watch during this year’s Venice Biennale.
