Brussels Design Market

The market devoted entirely to vintage design

Founded in 2002, the Brussels Design Market is a flea market devoted entirely to design with an emphasis on products dating from the 50s to the early 80s. Following its expansion, the 11th edition of the largest post-war design market is organised at Tour & Taxis, in partnership with Art Brussels and Design September.
On Saturday, April 30 and Sunday May 1, hundred exhibitors, professionals and dedicated amateurs, hailing from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy will be unpacking furniture and other design objects from the 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s in the convivial atmosphere of a busy flea market. The event, for the public, dealers and collectors alike will take place in the magnificent, historic setting of the old harbour station at Tour & Taxis, 86c avenue du Port, 1000 Brussels (entrance via the Tour & Taxis site).
Naturally, one has to be an early bird to find the rarer objects as the dealers will get there first. But exhibitors will also be bringing more affordable, if no less beautiful pieces, such as Eames and Panton chairs, Knoll tables, Bertoia armchairs, etc. A treasure trove of finds: you can expect to discover Scandinavian, Belgian, French, Italian ad American furniture alongside ceramics and glassware, collectors pieces and accessories in plastic, metal, wood and Bakelite.
