    26/09/2017 > 29/01/2018 - A Tribute to Componibili
    From September 2017 to early 2018, the ADAM- Brussels Design Museum has the pleasure to host the exhibition A Tribute to Componibili, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo (Milan - Italy) and part of the Brussels Design September festival. A Tribute to Componibili will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Componibili, a new type of furniture designed in 1967 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri. These were the rst modular interior design pieces which could be assembled too. They were made of the very new ABS, a material which was an important milestone in the history of plastic due to its mechanical and aesthetic characteristics. Anna Castelli Ferrieri was able to understand, often before her male colleagues, the living needs of her times and she responded with very functional products such as the Componibili, which bore out that concept of modularity and became a leitmotif lasting down through the following decades. Far from the traditional furniture intended for certain speci c environments with clearly de ned functions (such as the sideboard, the night table or the commode), Componibili t into any context and met the living needs of young people in the 1960s. The exhibition tells the story of Componibili from an emotional viewpoint, to recount the way in which Componibili modular furniture interpreted interior design and encountered new tasted in contemporary living trends from the ’60 to date. To complete the exhibition, designers as Ron Arad, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, Alberto Meda, Alessandro Mendini, Nendo, Fabio Novembre, Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola, Tokujin Yoshioka, and Emilio Pucci and Missoni, will present their own personal interpretation of the Componibili. Furthermore, the exhibition will show the new interpretations of Componibili by the Belgian designers Xavier Lust Unfold and Muller Van Severen, which will enrich the exhibition and will emphasize the strong connection with Brussels Design September festival.

    22/10/2017 > 11/02/2018 - Exhibition - Patrick Marchal - Do you see the king?
    A Citizen of interstellar spaaaaaaace with sculptural ambitions and metallic structures, Patrick Marchal plays with colour and iconic symbols. What matters “is the message that is conveyed”. A silversmith-visual artist, creator of Unidentified Prestigious Objects with evocative names, he explodes classical conventions of jewellery, imposing himself through a critical approach and scathing humour. No one is bound by the impossible, so therefore everything is permitted. Marked by a visual culture, his work expresses a reality that is taken to the extreme and revealed in objects of finery. The metal or steel become bombs, cartridges…and adornments! Between here and on high? This is a game of assembling contemporary materials and emblematic images to produce brilliant creations. Patrick Marchal offers us highly coloured pieces, hallmarked by excellence. His work is refined and complex, in which we slowly see the intention overtaking the aestheticised practice. With Do You See the King? the CID is presenting the artist’s largest solo exhibition and at the same time challenging the emotional, social and cultural significance of jewellery.

    01/11/2017 > Opening of Museum L
    Museum L: an exciting new university museum presenting a dialogue between scientific collections and art works Located in Louvain-la-Neuve, less than 30 km from Brussels, the new museum of the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL), Museum L, will open in a completely renovated building on the 18th of November. This will be Belgium’s very first large-scale university museum, with an area of more than 3,830 m² open to the public. Its distinguishing features will be the dialogues that are set up between the art works and UCL’s unique scientific collections, and three labs where the public can handle exhibits. A Buddha next to a medieval Christ, ancient writings alongside calculating machines... Museum L, with 32,000 items in its collection, explores some new and unusual encounters that tell us about the world and our humanity. Art works are not the only thing on display: the museum also presents the UCL’s scientific collections. Natural history specimens, archaeological and ethnographic objects and scientific inventions are all on show in 2,580 m² of exhibition space at the heart of a building that is a landmark of modern Belgian architecture. Museum L is not like other museums: it is a place of living dialogue and exciting discovery.

    22/11/2017 > 25/02/2018 - Exhibition - From Belgium with light - Belgians almost invented light
    Even though it is not always apparent in our skies, lighting is a field in which both Belgian industry and designers excel. Since the early 1980s, the expansion of companies like Schréder and the creation of such brands as Light, Modular, Kréon, Wever&Ducré, Delta Light and Dark have opened up new opportunities for industrial designers and know-how in our country. In the space of a few decades, lighting design “made in Belgium” has forged an international name for itself, and even now is still going strong. Drawing on their technical knowledge of lighting, creators including Nathalie Dewez, Jos Devriendt, Alain Berteau, Sylvain Willenz and Frederik Delbart have oriented themselves towards a more intimate, personal notion of lighting, without surrendering to the temptation of ornamentation. Belgian lighting design proposes technical, efficient lighting alongside cutting-edge know-how and is tinged with emotions when certain designers address the subject.

    23/03/2018 > Exposition - Atomium: A love story since 1958
    A l’aube des Golden Sixties, l’Expo 58 est la première manifestation internationale depuis la fin de la Seconde guerre mondiale. Célébrant la paix retrouvée, l’humanisme et la modernité : l’Expo 58 a marqué les esprits et appartient depuis lors à la mémoire collective des belges. Tout le monde en a un souvenir, une anecdote, une photo de famille.

The People of 58 constitue une extension de l’exposition permanente de l’Atomium. A travers de nombreux documents, des vidéos, des photographies, des objets et costumes pour la plupart inédits : il s’agit de de s’intéresser plus particulièrement aux gens qui ont fait l’Expo 58 en se replongeant dans l’ambiance, l’atmosphère et l’expérience d’alors. Au ADAM, avec pour titre Graphic 58, le musée investigue les formes, les couleurs et les texture qui définissent l’univers graphique novateur de l’Expo 58. Le musée du design présentera aussi, en collaboration avec le musée de la Mode, Podium 58 qui illustre comment, à la veille des Swinging Sixties, dans un monde en plein changement confrontant monde ancien et nouveau, les visiteurs endimanchés se sont baladés dans les allées de l’Expo.

    Exposition proposée en collaboration avec Wallonie-Bruxelles Design-Mode (WBDM) dans le cadre d’Intersections,la biennale en design contemporain du ADAM, Domestic Tales invite à regarder le design de manière différente, en bousculant la dichotomie entre sujet et objet. Un conte pour enfants, qui, grâce à une mise en scène conviviale et à des animations interactives, explique l’importance du design et de sa valeur culturelle. Mais surtout, une expérience, qui nous permet de mieux comprendre les objets qui nous entourent, dans nos habitations et dans nos villes, qui, comme les personnages d’une histoire, ont et donnent un sens à la vie. Cette exposition est un hommage à la vie, la nôtre et celle des objets de design : interfaces du quotidien, gardiens d’héritages précieux du passé, agents d’expériences sociales et esthétiques, modèles de production et d’économie durables, vecteurs de scénarii innovants pour un futur meilleur.

    Exhibition in cooperation with Wallonia-Brussels Design-Mode (WBDM) as part of the biennale in contemporary design of the ADAM. ‘Domestic Tales’ invites to look at design in a different way, hustling the dichotomy between subject and object. A tale for children, which, thanks to an open staging and interactive animations, explains the importance of design and its cultural value. But above all, an experience that allows us to better understand the objects that surround us, in our homes and in our cities, which, as the characters in a story, have meaning and give meaning to life. This exhibition is a tribute to life, ours and that of the design objects: everyday interfaces, custodians of valuable legacies of the past, social and aesthetic experiences, production models and sustainable products, vectors of innovative scenarios for a better future.

    01/09/2018 > Exhibition - Kartell: A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass
    Within the framework of the programme 2017, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum will be to hosting a tribute to Ettore Sottsass, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo and shown during the Autumn and Winter 2017. This exhibition will be part of the Brussels Design September festival. The exhibition “Kartell. A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass” will present a comprehensive overview of the project by Ettore Sottsass work for Kartell. The exhibition will be mainly focused on the collection of objects he designed for Kartell in 2004. In 2014 Kartell paid tribute to the master of design Ettore Sottsass with a collection of original projects he designed 10 years earlier but that had never been created. With six vases, two stools and a lamp, the collection expresses a marked affinity with the aesthetics of Memphis, the famous design collective founded by Sottsass. With post-futurist volumes, the stools and vases have bright colours and express many aspects of Sottsass’ approach to design. The same colour palette is repeated in the “Daisy” hanging lamp with an unusual application of rectangular plastic shapes to a central disk. The exhibition is also enriched by references to the environment created by Sottsass on the occasion of the exhibition “Italy the New Domestic landscape” at MoMA (1972) and to the collection “Kartell goes Sottsass. A Tribute to Memphis”: chairs by Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola and Piero Lissoni covered with fabrics designed by Michele de Lucchi, Nathalie du Pasquier, and Ettore Sottsass himself and created in collaboration with Memphis.

    23/11/2018 > Exhibition - Night Fever: A Design History of Culture Club
    Nightclubs and discos are the epitome of contemporary culture. They merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, furnishing, graphics and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. As place of cultural experimentation for subcultures and avant-garde, they question the established codes of social life and offer individual and collective freedom by playing with different identities and realities. If the 20th century was the age of pop culture, the nightclub was probably its most powerful design expression. Night Fever is the first exhibition to examine the design history of the nightclub. It will feature exhibits from design, art, architecture, music and media including films and original photographs, flyers, posters, records covers, models, furniture, magazines as well as 1:1 installations that will immerse the visitors in a journey of creative experimentation.
