visit.brussels, in collaboration with 4 Brussels creators, has published an original guide for design, styling and aesthetics aficionados. It’s a great way to get off the beaten track and discover original and authentic places.
Brussels is setting trends in design and styling, thanks to the growing number of talented creators and original initiatives such as the new Collectible fair, the Brussels Design Market, Uptown Design, Brussels Design September and Nationa(a)l. Not to mention the new MAD Brussels Fashion & Design Platform, the ADAM Brussels Design Museum and schools like La Cambre / ENSAV, whose reputation continues to grow.
The guide aims to help people discover or rediscover Brussels through the eyes of four creators. For this first edition, visit.brussels asked three furniture designers, Jean-François D’Or, Damien Gernay, Marina Bautier, and stylist Gioia Seghers to share their favourites.
Elegant and practical, the book is divided into 5 sections – restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and cultural venues – separated from each other by the creators’ portrayals. From the specialist bookstore, through the concept store, to the neighbourhood café, the guide allows you to discover out-of-the-ordinary places and is both attractive and user-friendly.
With its 128 pages and graphic design with a strong focus on visuals, “Brussels by designers” is bound to attract inquisitive Brussels people and first-time visitors in search of original places.
Good to know:
The Brussels by designers guide is on sale for 8.50 euros at the reception desks of visit.brussels and in several Brussels bookshops.
