Contemporary Design Market

Meet and buy Belgian contemporary design

Since 2019, during its September edition, the Brussels Design Market is proud to dedicate a space exclusively to contemporary design. A unique opportunity to discover designers, meet up-and-coming talents and, of course, buy authentic Belgian design pieces.

The Contemporary Design Market is the exclusive place to discover and buy Belgian design and to meet the designers of our territory. Carefully selected by a committee of design experts, the designers will present their latest creations on the weekend of 25 and 26 September 2021, at the Maritime Station, on the Tour & Taxis site, next to the Brussels Design Market exhibitors.

Contemporary Design Market is part of the Design September programme and is an initiative of Flanders DC, Brussels Design September and Wallonie Design.
