The selected projects will be presented at Milan Design Week 2024 as part of the Fuorisalone (in town) from 15 to 21 April 2024 in an exhibition Belgium is Design curated by Baroness O.
Applicants must submit a product or project that fits within the concept described below. The product must be less than 2 years old or, in the case of a new project, already produced.
The Baroness O. creative studio, founded by Kim Vandeloo and Anne Van Assche, forges links between design and other disciplines.
Their multidisciplinary vision embraces history, politics and languages, and combines fashion, gastronomy and art.
For this exhibition, Belgium is Design celebrates the singular and ambiguous identity of Belgian design. Diversified country in many ways, its designers are unclassifiable, adaptative and humble.
The exhibition will show how Belgian design moves, connects and adapts to its environment and landscape, how it stimulates and questions the industry and its ability to stay within boundaries or transgress them, catalogue or defy them, or use them for marketing or communication purposes.
For this call, we are looking for objects developed by designers or companies with a vision, a sense of experimentation and a desire to redefine design beyond the boundaries of design disciplines.
