From 7 September through 1 October, Flanders DC will be hosting the second edition of Windows of Opportunity. Go window shopping along our large windows (from Kanselarijstraat 19 up to the intersection of Koloniënstraat and Kanselarijstraat) and discover new, up-and-coming talent as well as established design stars!
Windows don’t just provide views onto the outside world; they also attract the attention of passers-by, enticing us to come inside, have a look around and discover something. The Windows of Opportunity presentation opens a window onto the world of design. Who are the designers worth keeping track of? What are the new developments in ceramics, furniture, jewellery, textile design, and more? Casual passers-by and focused visitors alike will discover the answers as they gaze into the windows of Flanders DC.
Windows of Opportunity will be displaying 12 designers or design collectives at Kanselarijstraat 19 in Brussels. This section is located between Koloniënstraat and St. Michael’s Cathedral. The Flanders DC office is to the right of the entrance, on the left of the entrance to the former Design Flanders Gallery. In total there are eight generously-sized windows.
If your point of departure is Koloniënstraat, and you walk down the street until you reach the corner and then turn right towards the cathedral, you’ll get to check out the works of:
Kanselarijstraat - office side
Stuf (Jielt Gregoire)
Kanselarijstraat - former Design Flanders Gallery side

Lies Van Kerckhove - Fragmenture
