Concept

Collectible, a new and unique fair dedicated exclusively to 21st century contemporary collectible design, will be held from 7 to 11 March 2018, 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 four distinguished figures from the world of design: Jan Boelen, Tony Chambers, Maria Cristina Didero and Pascale Mussard.

The event, which seeks to break with the traditions of conventional fairs, where a certain uniformity is offered, will revive the design fair experience by offering visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in an atmosphere closer to that of an art exhibition, where everything is for sale. By bringing the fair to life in a new and different way, with an emphasis on creativity, Collectible will show that 21st century collectible design is 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.

Location

The Vanderborght building is the perfect setting for design objects and furniture presentation: its atrium generates a light shaft that illuminates the six floors of the building, the infrastructure is composed of museum quality walls.

The fair intends to break the mould of traditional fair formats, with an atmosphere and a set up very similar to a biennale. This feeling will be accentuated by the architecture of the space, which allows the visitor to naturally find the pathway.
