TLmag Silver Edition & Silver Guide 2016 marks the magazine’s silver jubilee and the 25th edition of the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk. TLmag’s ‘diamond cut’ dymaxion is put into dialogue with the Silver Lining Interior concept – curated by Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen in collaboration with the graphic design Joris Kritis and the artist Richard Venlet – of this year’s event. After Biennale Interieur, the exhibition will move to Spazio Nobile Gallery in Brussels from 24 November 2016 until 19 February 2017.
A curated selection of 25 designs – lighting, furniture, finishes, and accessories by cutting-edge creatives, recognised for their innovative concepts and culture of creation – will be contextualised in ‘all silver’ environment. Enhanced by the visual qualities of reflection, iridescence, and optical effect, this showcase is brought together thanks to scenographic elements designed by Abet Laminati. Joining the exhibition is this special edition TLmag Silver Guide, with further information about each designer, design and brand.
