Since 2013, TLmag and Atomium have been partners telling all kind of interesting stories about this unique design object which is over the human scale and appears as an ovni in the Belgian cityscape. Let’s look at it from inside out and discover the potential creative exhibitions which can emerge out from those magic balls which should have been dismantled after the Universal Exhibition of 1958. WOW ! The progress is now... As a real life experience, Atomium is great and reveals its facets, not only by looking at the panorama but by discovering yourself in the reflection of the aluminum panels which are covering this crazy invention of the 1950s. But let’s speak about contemporary art and design, the interactive dimension of lighting up the spaces within these spheres. It’s just another way of looking at things which is revealed to the public. Soon there will be a major work of art which will come to life next to the Atomium and will bring even more dialogue with the millions of visitors that the Atomium welcomes each year. Surely the most visited ‘monument’ in the small land, Belgium!

Berlin Art Glass debuted their new lighting brand ANALOG in Alcova Sassetti last Milan Design Week. The first series of this brand is called On Movement and Material and is created in collaboration with Philip Weber, the new Artistic Director of this cultural institution. He took the time to sit down with TLmag and talk about the lighting brand and his new position.

Using various textile techniques like knitting, embroidery and tufting, Paris-based textile artist Manon Daviet transposes her drawings into tapestries, creating what she calls “volume paintings”. Here, she talks TLmag through her multidisciplinary practice, finding inspiration in comic books and her embracing of mysticism in nature.
