Belgian design: COLLECTIBLE is the pioneering fair dedicated exclusively to 21st-century contemporary collectible design.

Experimental in its approach, COLLECTIBLE is a one of a kind platform for the showcase and discovery of the best in collectible design today. Seeking to continuously push the boundaries of creativity, the fair brings together established and emerging galleries, designers and design studios in a dynamic integrated space and collaborates with leading curators, design institutions and foundations to deliver groundbreaking commissions and curated projects.

COLLECTIBLE presents an expanded roster of over 100 international exhibitors and an exciting new panorama of unique and limited-edition works by practitioners from a mixed range of disciplines, sitting at the crossroads of design, architecture and art.

Interdisciplinary spaces and ateliers, renowned for their innovative and experimental approaches, further enrich the depth and scope of the fair. London-based Blue Mountain School conceives a special project bringing together sustainable design in line with their core mission. Emerging design hub and residency Zaventem Ateliers, located outside Brussels, feature new works by talented makers based in the communal workshop.

This year also sees the introduction of BESPOKE, a brand-new section showcasing signature works by individual designers and design studios through fresh creations and high-end commissions. Among the highlights, DIM Atelier, reputed for their level of craftsmanship, showcase new eye-catching lighting pieces in bronze, while BRUT Collective (Brussels) present a variation of their second edition of BODEM, a curated ensemble of art and design pieces produced in collaboration with Belgian architectural practice Antoine Architectural Finishes.

The CURATED SECTION, dedicated to designers and design studios with no gallery representation, is a space for radical experimentation and discovery where participants are required to explore pioneering ideas and processes in design.

Established in 2018 by art and design professionals Clélie Debehault and Liv Vaisberg, COLLECTIBLE is the only fair in the world to solely focus on 21st-century design. Breaking away from the traditional fair format, COLLECTIBLE seeks to reinterpret the design fair format, COLLECTIBLE seeks to reinterpret the design fair model by offering visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in an open and integrated space where designers, design studios, galleries, institutions and foundations come together.

5 -8 March. Vanderborght building, 50 rue de l’Ecuyer 1000 Brussels www.collectible.design
