Belgium is Design @ Fuorisalone Digital

Belgium is Design is an initiative of Flanders DC, MAD, Home of Creators and Wallonie-Bruxelles Design Mode (WBDM).

 

Covid-19, lockdowns and social distancing. For the first time in more than fifty years, the Milan Furniture Fair (Salone del Mobile) has been cancelled.
The space has been closed off, time is suspended. We have to face up to our fragility and our shortfalls, our fears, our grief, so uncertainty is inevitable. It is the time when we have to rethink our actions, observe our surroundings and listen intently: nature on the one side, on the other our cities. This slowing down offered another advantage: critical reflection which prevents active participation, between empathy and politics. This is what we can learn from design.
Starting off from this pretext, the institutions which are involved in the promotion of Belgian design have chosen to reconnect the designers and industry thanks to the site belgiumisdesign.be and the platform Fuorisalone.it, showing great solidarity to the profession, the economy, cohesion, and above all support for the values of ‘public service’, now more than ever.
Moreover, membership to Fuorisalone Digital adds an extremely important meaning: Milan’s Design Week is not only about business, but it is also about sharing an experience, within context and a timeframe. The Design System needs to be protected. On the other hand, design needs to become involved in redesigning the System.
With regards to this theme, Belgium is Design organises a talk on June 15th at 6 PM, which will be shared on the platform of Fuorisalone Digital. The roundtable discussion will welcome Belgian designers and entrepreneurs.
Belgium is Design is therefore inviting you to a special showcase of products and key players from the Belgian design world, starting from 15 June. And we cannot forget the young designers who were chosen for the SaloneSatellite 2020.
