Collectible 21st Century Design
Collectible is a pioneering fair exclusively dedicated to contemporary collectible design, gathering unique pieces and limited editions of 21st century. It will happen from 7-11 March 2018 in the former Vanderborght Building in Brussels. This extraordinary building was commissionned by the Vanderborght Brothers and built up in the 1930s. It opened in 1935 as a furniture department store. After several decades the building was acquired by Dexia to house its art collection. It has already hosted Independent Art Fair, the KunstenFestivaldesArts during Brussels European Capital of Culture in 2000 and has welcome several cultural events in the past few years. The City of Brussels owns the Vanderborght building since 2012.
COLLECTIBLE is a fair with global ambition which operates as a European convergence point bringing together the finest international galleries and design networks. A driven and highly skilled team, an internationally renowned selection committee and a well thought-out location guarantee a new approach, breaking the mould of traditional fair formats. The atmosphere and setup will be more similar to an exhibition than typical fairs. The architecture of the Vanderborght building is perfectly suited to hosting Collectible and allows the visitor to naturally navigate the pathway.
