Organic forms, pop geometry and plenty of bling set the mood for this year’s Collectible design fair in Brussels. Established in autumn 2017 by art and design market veterans Clélie Debehault and Liv Vaisberg, Collectible is a conscious step away from the reductive feel of most design fairs. Favouring tomorrow’s tastemakers over yesterday’s greatest hits, Collectible is dedicated exclusively to 21st-century collectible design, and the increasing overlap of art, design, and architecture that we are currently witnessing.
This vision expands in Collectible’s second edition, which runs 14 – 17 March 2019. Art galleries and cultural institutions join forces with over 90 designers filling the sumptuous digs of the Vanderborght building, a former 1930s furniture store located in the heart of Brussels.
Among the design gallery heavyweights like Maniera and Valerie Traan, this year’s run includes young blood. Functional Art Gallery, Berlin’s first space for contemporary collectible design, will exhibit the armchairs by OrtaMiklos, while The Impermanent Collection will debut new works by artist duo Ker-Xavier.
