MAISON & OBJECT 2018
FLANDERS DC AND WBDM ASSOCIATE TO SUPPORT 10 BRANDS UNDER THE LABEL BELGIUM IS DESIGN.
For the first time, Flanders DC and Wallonie Bruxelles Design Mode are joining forces for the next Maison & Objet trade show in Paris. The 10 brands selected for the 2018 January edition will be on display at a shared stand in the NOW section.
In keeping with the philosophy of Belgium is Design, the label supporting this initiative, these 10 brands present an enticing cross-section of contemporary Belgian design. Far from an isolated initiative, this collective presence at the Maison & Objet trade show is very much in the spirit for Belgium is Design. For almost 10 years, the Belgium is Design label has been co-ordinating actions orchestrated by Belgian institutions responsible for promoting design.
The aim is to support Belgian creatives, offering them international showcases and promoting projects to export products produced by their companies. The brands on display have been chosen for their standing in a very competitive market, their innovation (as much in the choice of materials as production processes, including handmade products, which are very well represented in this selection), their participative approach to design, a commitment to the environment through recycled materials and products which are built to last, and production which favours made in Belgium.
The selected designers have been chosen to complement one another, offering a wide and diverse range of products: furniture, lamps, wallpaper, indoor and outdoor objects, etc. Apart from two brands, all the designers selected for this year are taking part in the trade show for the first time. For them, this represents a fantastic opportunity for growth and development.
