Chaise. Stoel. Chair. Defining Design

BEHIND THE SCENES – Visits of the reserves – Discover the reserves of the Plastic Design Collection of the Design Museum Brussels which will be exceptionally open and accessible to visitors for these Nocturnes. The visit of the reserves will be animated in an original way by the guides of Korei and Arkadia.
EXTRA MUROS – Extra muros tour outside the museum – This tour will show you the remains of the two World Fairs that took place at the Heysel. The Heysel Plateau is a fine example of the development of modern architecture in Brussels: from Palace 5 to the former Pavilion of the Kortrijk Tile Factory, via the Atomium, the experiments and dreams of modernity of the 20th century are displayed here in all their boldness. In collaboration with Laeken Découverte/Laken Onthuld.

Created from the collections of the London Design Museum, Design Museum Brussels and Galila’s Collection (Brussels), the Chair. Stoel. Chair. Defining Design exhibition retraces the world of design from the end of the 19th century to the present day through this object – the chair – in constant redefinition, reaffirmation and hybridisation. 


Built by utility, experimentation, irony, statement or out of simple creative joy, the chair is one of the staples of many designers’ careers. As an everyday object, it materialises and questions the cultural, technical and historical background of society.
