Belgium is Design / Milan Design Week 2019 / Fuorisalone Design - 05 November 2018
For many years Wallonie-Bruxelles Design/Mode collaborates with the other regions to boost the belgian design during the design week in Milan. Once again WBDM takes part in 2019 edition (April 9-14) at the FuoriSalone with an exhibition under the label Belgium is Design, in collaboration with Flanders DC, MAD Brussels et Brussels Invest&Export.
Exposition: the forest, an ecosystem to safeguard
The exhibition clings to a larger project, MAAKBAAR. It is a project launched by the BOS + in collaboration with Flanders DC, OVAM, Design Museum Gent and AIDER Peru. It aims to educate a broad audience about the sustainable and responsible use of forests throughout its ecosystem. MAAKBAAR raises the question of the role of design activities in the transition to a sustainable global society.
WBDM presents 5 projects born from the collaboration within 5 companies and 5 designers. A common theme ties these collaborations: the sustainable use of wood, enhancing the local resources of the Walloon forests.
5 projects to enhance the local wood from Wallonia
The aim of these collaborations is to develop a new product through the exploration of technical know-how and manufacturing tools, or through the use of an innovative material.
