If we had the time, we’d take a contemporary interior design tour around the globe. From the Salone del Mobile in Milan to the 100% Design 2014 in London, there are countless destinations to visit in between. Next up, we’re headed to the 24th International Biennale Interieur, taking place October 17th – 26th in Kortijk, Belgium.
In addition to a stellar list of exhibitors, including Alessi, B.Lux, Extremis, and Verzelloni, attendees also have the opportunity to listen in on a series of presentations curated by British Architect and author Joseph Grima. This series of lectures is focused around the theme of this year’s International Biennale, “The Home Does Not Exist.”
The theme encourages all of us in the design world to investigate the construct of “home,” including how that concept has changed between the post-war era and the world we live in now. Says Grima, “…the relationship between aesthetics, finance, and social ethics has changed considerably…we would like to propose a simple premise: the home, as we know it, no longer exists…concepts of domesticity…we continue to harbour must be interrogated and reframed using a new set of possibilities.”
Casa Design looks forward to exploring these ideas and sharing them with clients. Perhaps we’ll see you at one of the many Biennale presentations, exhibits and performative installations in the exhibition halls of Kortrijk Xpo as well as around the city of Kortrijk.
