If you have questions about building accessibility and/or activities, please contact the museum directly.

Located on the Heysel plateau, the Design Museum Brussels, initiated following the acquisition of a private collection by the Atomium, is dedicated to 20th-century and its history. Favoring a historical approach and echoing current and future research, the museum aims to make design accessible and understandable to all audiences. Much more than formal, aesthetic, and functional objects, design bears witness to the economic, social, ideological, and cultural conditions of the time. A place for encounters, discoveries and sharing, the Design Museum Brussels promotes the multidimensionality of design through its collections, exhibitions, and mediation activities.

EXPO Since its founding in 1908, Olivetti has made a name for itself through legendary products such as its typewriters, but also through its close relationship with the world of art. Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon worked for Olivetti on numerous occasions over a period of almost three decades. The exhibition presents the rich artistic collaboration between the Italian design company Olivetti and the artist Jean-Michel Folon.

EXPO Discover the Pastis collection by Julien Renault, named designer of the year 2023, which brings together all the drawings, models and prototypes representing the stages in the development of his collection.

GUIDED TOUR Discover the Olivetti · Folon exhibition with a guide.
