Atelier Munana Gatera

Visit the INZU - Atelier Munana Gatera
Born in Burundi, raised between Rwanda, Congo and Belgium, working between Lisbon and Brussels, Munana Gatera is a self-taught artist who likes to play with different crafts and techniques. A serial creator at heart, he does not like to label himself a designer or a painter but rather considers himself a creator of emotions who takes on any creative endeavor his soul calls for. He has collaborated with name brands and independent designers before creating his own namesake brand in 2014. In 2021, Munana and his team inaugurated the INZU (home in Kinyarwanda) to operate as atelier, showroom, and exhibition space. The space usually available upon reservation, will open doors for 3 days during BDC. About "Art on RUGS"Returning after a long time spent pondering and experimenting with his craft in the confines of his atelier, Munana Gatera comes back to the design world with a high-end rug collection. Remaining true to himself in this capsule collection, he brings together his many disciplines: painting, fashion, graphic art, and design.Partly re-creation, partly exclusive design this collection [re]presents the essence of the Gatera DNA. Each rug is limited to seven numbered sealed copies, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. The rugs are handmade in Portugal following long-lived traditional techniques.

Collective exhibition

- Opening on 21 September at 6pm -

The interior architecture of the Grand Hospice has been radically transformed and only the chapel retains its original appearance, in which 6 designers will take their place to exhibit their creations during Design September.

Chanel Kapitanj / Studio Chanel Kapitanj
Born in Liege in 1992, Chanel Kapitanj studied Industrial Design in Belgium. Her fascination for metal materials and manual work led her to train as a metal welder. As a result, she launched her own design and metalwork studio in 2017. She approaches her projects with a minimalist approach and a focus on metallic materials.

Martha Samyn
In Martha Samyn's work, one can feel her fascination with colour and the human body. Recalling her own childhood freedom, she designs playful and colourful pieces. In this way, she wants to breathe new life into grey interiors and wardrobes. The rugs, blankets, clothes make you think of a more playful and free adult life. What is normally hidden, is now shown. Through nonchalant, open and free-spirited themes such as sexuality, childhood and male-female relationships, she questions the world and asks what it means to be an adult. What is allowed and what is not? Can an adult show his or her skin without it being sexual, as a child can? When are we considered adults and when do we become adult enough to have to hide everything?

Lisa Berden
Lisa Berden is a Belgian designer who is fascinated by the challenge and transformation of our daily reality. Her designs are constantly searching for a certain sense of contemporary beauty where the key pillar is to create a sense of wonder through complexity in simplicity. Because of her fascination with experimental research, 'playfulness' is often reflected in her designs. Lisa likes to mix and match different disciplines to create new visions of design.

Billyjean Potvliege / Studio Billyjean
Travel bags is a project born from the questioning of man as a wanderer, whether by survival or by choice. Illustrated by a simple and functional object, but which tells many stories and is known by many names. In Antwerp they are called 'Moroccan bags', while at the Antwerp Fashion Academy, for example, they are called 'Chinese bags' or 'Japanese bags'. In Germany, it is called "the Turkish suitcase". In some parts of Africa, it is the "Ghana Must Go" bag, a bitter reminder of a dark chapter in the history of Nigeria and Ghana. In still other countries, it is simply called the 'refugee bag'. The reference to faraway places seems to sum up the fact that the bag represents migration. A symbol of man's long history as a nomad, this plastic bag is an object linked to communities that gather, meet and overlap.

Sugarman
Thomas Meulder wants to tell stories through objects. Let the object you choose to have with you and pass by every morning speak to you! That it is not soulless, devoid of past and identity. That it does not exist only to fulfil a primary function, but that it conveys a message, that it reveals a past life experience, a sharing between several personalities, a respect for the world that surrounds us and, like a carefully selected praline in its box, a delectable creativity.

CR#1 - Collection Responsable

- Opening on 16/09: 6pm & closing on 23/09: 6pm -

The CR#1 exhibition aims to show our first range of non-commissioned furniture and objects. This range represents the duo's ethic, between a need for artistic expression and a subtle reaction to the stealthy end of the world and the destruction of ecosystems. CR#1 is as much an intimate production as a political one. We cannot create without understanding. We therefore privilege technical clarity, sharing our magic with the ambition to unveil the secrets of furniture design and respect for the material. It is the latter that guides and inspires us more than anything else. All the objects we make are made of materials we have found in the cities and places we travel through. Each piece of material carries with it the layers of its territory, its character, its history. We examine our materials and tame them in our hands, with our senses. Our pieces tell and weave, each in its own way, a life story, an attachment to the spaces, moments and people who have made them emerge and who make them their own. CR#1 allows us to create a moment of sharing and discussion around these stories, and the vision that we have of objects: tools that allow for connection and exchange, that make us reflect on the value of matter, rejection, and creation.

In the frame of the Czech Presidency of the EU, the exhibition “Design and Transformation. Stories of Czech Design 1990-2020” presents the Czech Republic as a place where innovations that are beneficial in an international context are born and where locally specific traditions are also preserved and valued. The exhibition explores the selected projects of thirteen successful companies that reflect the upheavals of Czech history and have a long legacy of products known far beyond the borders of the Czech Republic such as the international car manufacturer Škoda and furniture producer TON, as well as other young companies. Furthermore, the show will also pay homage to more traditional Czech domains, for example glassmaking. To accompany the exhibition, a presentation of the Prague Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design will be included, which features a video projection on the facade of the Prague House in Brussels.Main Organizer: UMPRUM Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague together with Moravian Gallery in Brno and the Design Museum Brussels.

DESIGNERS TOWER
a dialogue between German and Brussels based designers
=> open from Tues. to Sat.: 10am > 6 pm.

In 2020, a first joint exhibition with Brussels and German designers from the state state of North Rhine-Westphalia was initiated at Passagen in Cologne, during the yearly international furniture fair. The initial plan was - and still is - to continue this cross-border exchange between MAD Brussels and Designers Towers. Unfortunately, lockdown measures due to Covid prevented two successive bilateral exhibitions in 2021 and 2022.

At last, during Design September 2022, an exhibition with five young design talents and design studio's from each NRW and Brussels, ten in total, will take place. The fact that this will be in Brussels is a première in the true sense.

The selected designers from NRW are Anja Bachmann, JBNG, Julian Gerullis, Johannes Budde and Olaf Schroeder & Enis Akiev. Their work will be confronted with the work of Brussels based designers : Beaverhausen, Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte, Yvan Caillaud Design Studio, Zigmund Pront and Esther De Vos. The selected designers from both regions meet for the first time. Herewith, different orientations of design training and cultural imprinting of both regions emerges. The presented concepts, furniture and home furnishings enter into a multi-layered correspondence which conveys a transnational outlook on the interior design of tomorrow.

Both the Brussels-Capital Region and the neighbouring German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) are widely recognized as centers for European design. The focus of the joint venture has been on innovative interior design preferably coming from young designers from both regions. Designers Tower which already made a name as a platform for design talent from the state of NRW, supported by the State Ministry of Economic Affairs, has been the initiator. MAD Brussels, funded by the Brussels-Capital Region and the City of Brussels, was the Belgian public partner in the 2020 event. Hub.brussels has been in charge of the practical organisation.

Documentary by Liloé Duchesne & Léa Lebru + workshop/collective debate in collaboration with ESA St Luc Bruxelles

Despite their emancipation, the term "Third Place" still evokes little. For this reason, each place can take a varied form. Thus, the directors of the film are going to meet third places in order to give us a reading of them. They will present the values and projects of three third places and the different problems that the groups may face.

Gio: Desired offcut by Duplex Studio

- Opening exposition « Gio: Desired offcut» le 22 September from 6pm to 10pm -
The exhibition will be open 7 days a week from 15 September to 2 October from 11 am to 5 pm.

Based on Distributive Design, Gio tackles how finished products are made while improving the designer/producer/customer's relationship.Through its design process, Gio discusses local production, knowledge sharing and production sovereignty. Gio is a lamp made of stone, wood offcuts and 3d printed bio-plastic. Context Today, designers need to think about disruptive models and innovative production solutions to ensure the transition toward a sustainable economy. The democratisation of local production methods could tackle the established industry where mass-produced products are made. Nowadays, using local materials combined with sharing knowledge and local manufacturing machines is essential to increase local economic prosperity and self-sufficiency in making qualitative products. We think of Gio as a system which embodies local production innovation: We used offcuts of Belgian stones called "Hainault blue stone" as the Gio structure. We decided to use durable, noble and time-resistant material offcuts to keep resources in circulation. The use of materials that become more beautiful with time is a way to bring longevity to objects. The stone was milled with a "Mekanika" CNC, an affordable open-source CNC router. The technical and adaptable parts were 3D printed with natural filaments of mussels, scallop shells, wheat and coffee. We seek to involve people to work with local materials that embody the specificities of the regions and the geological landscape. Through democratic manufacturing methods, Gio shows the possibilities of producing our own finished objects.

Hey Jude Design x La Caravane Studio

- Opening on 17/09 -

On the occasion of its 5th anniversary, La Caravane Studio welcomes the new collection of home textiles Hey Jude, made from recycled textile waste from the Belgian high-end linen company Libeco.

HEY JUDE DESIGN is a textile studio in Brussels working with the artisanal techniques of weaving, knotted stitch, crochet, knotting… The creation process is slow and requires patience and passion for the gesture. As recurring themes: escape, the poetry of the horizon, the landscape and the nature that invades it. Inspiring places that leave room for spontaneous creation without a predetermined design. So many forms, colours and textures that create a language of their own that can convey a story to the viewer. Collections of textile decorations, 100% Made in Belgium, gathering unique self-published pieces.

LA CARAVANE STUDIO unearths, selects, restores, advises, furnishes and stages. All pieces are ready-to-use, having been carefully curated and restored by the creative mind behind it all, Claire Silva Moreira. The choices are a reflection of her personal style, a surprising, daring mixture of different decades and materials that nonetheless always remain harmonious and homogenous. Staying true to its name, La Caravane Studio is constantly on the move, creating a different atmosphere every month in the shop.

Prototypes by Sébastien Caporusso

- Opening on 8th September at 6pm -

Designer and interior architect Sébastien Caporusso, winner of the "Designer of the Year 2021" award in Belgium, opens his exhibition in the gallery at 59 Van Eyckstraat on 8 September 2022. An exclusive series of new furniture will be presented for the occasion. For this exhibition, Sébastien has chosen to put forward a space of creative freedom, testifying to the dynamism and radiance that he instills in his architectural projects.

This selection reflects his way of expressing himself as freely as possible through drawing, materials and colors. In order to share his vision in his work with wood, concrete inlays, stone, ceramics and his other favorite materials. This artistic reflection without framework and without constraint will show his personal and intimate way of creating links, encounters with the material, the product and the craftsmen.

On this occasion, his new book will also be presented, retracing the different stages of the realization of his latest coworking space, created for Silversquare Europe.

Sep Verboom x Lampirong

- OPENING ON 15/09: at 6pm -

A few years ago the industrial designer Sep Verboom (°1990) founded the Livable collective. This is a platform where community stories and interesting materials are gathered and where other designers and industry are involved. The Lampirong project also fits into this platform. The Lampirong, known as the Capiz oyster, is found in abundance around the capital of the Philippines. It is the only transparent shellfish. These were a flourishing precursor to glass, used to make sliding windows during the Spanish occupation in the 19th century. As filters, shellfish can purify up to 40 litres per hour by eating plankton and organic waste from upstream rivers. This gives them an important place in the local ecosystem. Unfortunately, these are turbulent times for shellfish. Bottom fishing, warming waters and stronger currents are reducing populations. Communities depend on them for their livelihoods and a clean environment. The Lampirong project is an invitation to rethink the use of Capiz shellfish, in order to protect and enhance the whole ecosystem.

EXHIBITIONS

Talismanie x Ataman Label

Observing the often bewildered people in need of guidance in this increasingly virtual world - we thought that jewelry should regain its essence of "connecting" the visible and invisible world as in the past. The talisman or amulet is an object of reconnection to our initial essence and also more commonly interpreted as an object of protection or simple good luck. Precious stones are mainly the vectors charged with liberating memory codes. The jewels presented by Amelie and Martine refer to this energizing mission. Amelie creates revisited signet rings set with semi-precious stones and other ethnic-inspired gri-gri/amulets. Martine presents her creations still referring to the imprint of the skin but this time using another technique of applying wax on the silicone causing baffles and strange meanders naturally on the surface of the metal on which small citrines or amethysts in the shape of a crescent moon come by their colour and brilliance animating the jewel.

Creations made by Ataman Label will also be exhibited.

Upcycled & Of Rope And Wood by Rima Khatib

OPENING HOURS:
During the week: open from 2pm until 7pm.
During the weekend : open from 11am until 6pm.

Since the beginning of my work as a furniture designer, I have sought to reduce the ecological impact of my activity, by choosing to use natural, as well as, waste raw materials, while avoiding polluting products.The Upcycled collection of furniture and lamps is produced from scrap wood and composite boards recovered at the workshop, frosted empty glass jars from restaurants, as well as, used plastic bags fused into translucent thin plates. The new table from the Rope and Wood collection is part of my efforts to reduce the consumption of raw materials in my pieces, while seeking another structural logic in the design and assembly of the pieces. As with a suspension bridge, the use of cables allows the reduction in mass and volume of the bridge, which would have been otherwise much heavier, if built in the traditional way. Here, with this table, the idea is to use the tension of the rope to allow the various plywood parts of the furniture to be set in place without resorting to the use of glue or screws. This concept also helps meet the needs of a nomadic generation, and the new mode of purchasing which allows this piece of furniture to be delivered flat and be easily assembled by the buyer without tools. At the symbolic level, the alliance of the rope with the wood represents the alliance of flexibility and lightness with solidity and heaviness, opposites that are both necessary. A new design research trac that will lead to a different aesthetic freedom in terms of curves and shapes possible with this technique still at the beginning of its exploration.

Together, they will discuss how design and architecture can play a central role in saving and rebuilding a nation.

Lecture in partnership with Umanoa, Elevating Contemporary Art & Design, www.umanoa.com

Victoria Yakusha is a Ukrainian designer-architect, and artist, whose unique philosophy of « live design » centers on a deep connection to earth and cultural roots. Since starting her architectural studio Yakusha in 2006, and the design brand, FAINA, in 2014, she has emerged as one of the leading voices of contemporary Ukrainian design.
Over the years her designs have been exhibited at Design Miami/ Basel, Collectible Fair, Venice Biennale, Paris Design Week, Stockholm Design Week, Milan Design Week, etc.
In 2019, Victoria Yakusha was named Designer of the Year by Elle Decoration International Design Awards, Ukraine.

Louise Haxthausen, Director, UNESCO, Liaison and Representation Office to the European Union :
Prior to becoming Director of the UNESCO Office in Brussels in 2019, Ms. Haxthausen, whose academic background is in politics and law, has had a career of more than thirty years at UNESCO in the areas of culture and human rights. The main focus of her work has been conflict and crisis situations, particularly in the Middle-East. As Director Principal, Ms. Haxthausen coordinated dossiers in Afghanistan and Palestine. More recently, Ms. Haxthausen was Director of the UNESCO office in Bagdad, Irak.

Yves Ubelmann, President and co-founder of ICONEM:

- Opening on 07/09 at 4pm -

The Fondation Thalie highlights multidisciplinary artistic practices, with an emphasis on the dialogue between visual arts and craftsmanship. Curated by Anissa Touati, the exhibit Warché, « worksite » in Arabic, is based on the personal history of Lina Ghotmeh, a Beyrouth native architect who defines herself as an archaeologist of the future, in dialogue with contemporary visual artists Emilija Škarnulytė and Sara Ouhaddou. For the foundation, Lina Ghotmeh is taking over the floor of the exhibition space with locally-sourced bricks, demonstrating her commitment to this bio sourced material. Conceived as an agora, a place for reflection and participatory exchange, the exhibit questions our relationship with time as a witness to our moments spent on earth and our interpretations of the city, whether political or poetic.

WORKS EXHIBITION By Master Design d'Innovation Sociale de l'ESA St Luc Bruxelles

Faced with a society in the throes of change, with the rise of new economic models, new modes of production and consumption, and new forms of citizenship, the Master's degree in Social Innovation Design at the Ecole Supérieure Artistique de St Luc, Brussels, encourages creation based on the analysis of the human being, societies and their contexts.
The aim of this course is to confront the practice of students from all sectors of the visual and spatial arts with problems in the field, integrating social, cultural and environmental notions in a holistic and systemic manner. This master's degree is centred on a human-centred Design Thinking practice, integrating technical feasibility, economic viability and desirability for the user.

Youth through the lens

- Opening on 15/09 at 6pm -

Generation Z is becoming the largest and most diverse generation ever. Born between 1996 and 2010, it is the first generation that cannot imagine life without the Internet and is growing up in a fully digital world. This generation values individual expression and therefore needs not only personalised products, but also high-end products that allow them to stand out completely. However, this is also a generation that is growing up in a period of great social unrest, climate change and political conflict. MAD Brussels presents Youth through the Lens, an exhibition that shows this generation's perspective on the contemporary fashion world. A series of photographs by seven photographers who are fully committed to the themes of sustainability and inclusion to which they attach great importance. The photographers are: Antoine Roland, Gordon Jordan Nyimi, Maxime Dupont, Noah Dechamps, Paul-Louis Godier, Shania Semeli, Safa and Marwa Naji.

Zaventem Ateliers Open doors

Zaventem Ateliers is located in Flanders, in the heart of the town of Zaventem and at two steps from Brussels. The former 6000m2 paper mill has been transformed in a truly creative space thanks to the driving force of designer, scenographer and interior architect Lionel Jadot.

This industrial building houses some thirty individual studios of different sizes, among which the designer’s personal studio. The building only opened in September 2018 and today almost all studios are taken by artists and collectives working ceramics, leather, metal, marble or wood.

This diverse group of artists with different backgrounds and personalities form an impressively stimulating and innovative group. The studios form a close-knit community characterized by a family and entrepreneurial atmosphere. It is an exquisite selection of both emerging and more experienced artists, where cooperation, discussion and sharing expertise are put central.

All thirty studios overlook the Grand Hall, an impressive 600m2 exhibition space. The Grand Hall is the ideal place to offer an extra dimension to the creative ambition of Zaventem Ateliers and in the meantime opens the dialogue with the outside world. Typical for the Grand Hall is the fact that it’s located in the middle of the artists. This way, the public not only gets the chance to visit an exhibition, but also to dive into the intimacy of the studios. Every visitor gets the opportunity to meet the Zaventem Ateliers designers and artists.
