Biennale Interieur

Kortrijk / BE
– 22.10.2018
interieur.be 

The first edition of the Biennale Interieur 50 years ago took place in the spirit of the 1968 movement. Back then, people wanted to rebel against the established idea of good design, break new ground, and involve the general public. Since then, the event has become a permanent fixture in the design landscape. In 2018, the event will be reduced to five days and more attention will be paid to the topics of business and entrepreneurship. Once again, the main venue is the Xpo congress centre. This year’s scenography was created by Studio Verter and is inspired by the basic functional principles of the urban space. The Biennale’s programme continues in the centre of Kortrijk, with a special venue being a former hospital. Again this year, The Floor Is Yours serves as a platform for young designers, new studios, collaborations, and universities.
