Following a well-received debut during Milan Design Week, Belgian Matters made its way to Brussels at the Design Flanders Gallery last month for Design September. This month from 14–23 October, the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk marks the final time that the organization Belgium is Design will present the exhibition in toto. Conceived in collaboration with DAMN° Magazine, the exhibition pairs 13 designers with as many companies, many of which are outside the domain of furniture design.

Belgian Matters is as much about the process, starting with materials and techniques, as it is about the final products. The collaboration proved to be a mutually beneficial dialogue for both the designers and the partners — from manufacturers to artisans to research centers — as the experience is presented alongside the results. Similarly, the participants hail from all three regions of Belgium: Brussels, Flanders, and Wallonia.

The full list of participants:

Julien Carretero + Carrières de la Pierre Bleue belge

Maarten De Ceulaer + Alton

Frederik Delbart + Van Den Weghe

Damien Gernay + Delvaux

Kaspar Hamacher + Tannerie Radermecker

Christiane Högner & Thomas Lommée + OpenStructures

LeviSarha + Marcel Ziemons

Marie Mees & Cathérine Biasino + Van Caster

Muller Van Severen + valerie_objects & Alton

Julien Renault + Timbergroup

Ben Storms + Het Glazen Huis

Unfold + Materialise

Mathias van de Walle + Ralph Baggaley

Belgian Matters will be on view at the Biennale Interieur, Kortrijk Xpo, Hall 1, Booth 118, from 14–23 October.
