For Milan Design Week 2017 Belgium is Design, have joined forces to take part in the group event A Matter of Perception at Palazzo Litta whose 2017 theme is dedicated to Linking Minds.
Belgitude is a simple declaration of pride in diversity: different historical roots, different languages, different backgrounds, skills and industrial specialities. Fearless to innovate, or to open up new horizons, or to mix identities. This is Belgium.
Elaborating on the 2016 approach, Belgium is Design asked 10 designers to select the companies they wanted to collaborate with. The reasons for their choices are boundless: affinity, continuity or curiosity… Belgitude is about exchanging know-hows, collaborative excellence, friendly dialogues, but most of all, it is about local production, and definitely, about time.
