The Design Museum Brussels is a space dedicated to design from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Design Museum Brussels, established after the acquisition of a private collection by the Atomium, is a place dedicated to design and its history. Since 2015, the museum's collection, The Plastic Design Collection, circumscribes the landscape of plastics in design from the 1950s to the present day. Alongside this collection, in September 2020 the museum opened Belgisch Design Belge, a new permanent exhibition space dedicated to Belgian design and its history.
Enriched by a programme of temporary exhibitions, the Design Museum Brussels also explores other fields of design creation and its impact on society and our daily lives.
Through exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, conferences and events, the museum aims to ensure that design is intelligible to one and all.
The architectural design was conceived and carried out by Lhoas & Lhoas Architectes. To achieve the successful completion of the Design Museum Brussels project, Lhoas & Lhoas architectes have formed a partnership with museographer Thierry Belenger (specialist in 20th century design) and Alexandra Midal (design theoretician and historian).
The furniture inside the museum and lighting are provided by VITRA and DELTA LIGHT respectively.
