Company description

COLLECTIBLE - the fair for 21st century design COLLECTIBLE, a unique fair dedicated exclusively to 21st century contemporary collectible design, whose second edition will be held from 14 to 17 March 2019, in the centre of Brussels in the Vanderborght building. Conceived as a unifying platform and an exclusive meeting point in the heart of Europe, COLLECTIBLE brings together renowned international galleries and designers, all at the forefront of creativity, selected by a committee composed of distinguished figures from the world of design. The event, which seeks to break with the traditions of conventional fairs, where a certain uniformity is offered, revives the design fair experience by offering visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in an atmosphere closer to that of an exhibition, where everything is for sale. By bringing the fair to life in a new and different way, with an emphasis on creativity, COLLECTIBLE shows that 21st century collectible design is also for all art lovers. The presence of cultural institutions, as well as the particular care given to the pedagogical aspects, contribute to its unique format.
