belgian design

With traditions in fine arts and craftsmanship that span centuries, Belgium is unsurprisingly a place where architects and interior designers create inspiring spaces and designs. Here, you can discover more about contemporary Belgian design and see examples of furniture, products, and lighting from the country’s most talented creatives as well as from a series of established brands. Whether you want a source of inspiration to design your home’s living spaces or simply love Belgian design, you’ll find an array of compelling projects here.

While similar to the minimalism and understatement of Scandinavian design, Belgian design also features a stronger focus on tactile materials. Think raw stone and unfinished wood that complement soft materials, furniture with clean lines and objects with glossy finishes. The projects featured on this page center on lighting, furniture, and home accessories. To bring some of these Belgian designs to life, creatives took inspiration from architectural elements, nature, paper models, and even construction techniques. While different and serving different purposes, these products are all imaginative.

Both inventive and timeless, these designs are also ideal for modern living spaces. That means flexibility and convenience coupled with minimalist styles that look great anywhere. Some furniture collections are also specially made for people who move frequently or who enjoy a more nomad lifestyle. These products feature easy assembly systems that allow the users to quickly pack, unpack, and install pieces of furniture. Other products have modular designs that provide an easy solution to customize a shelving unit, for example. A minimalist kitchen that blends into any home with ease also features a practical design that minimizes clutter. Finally, all of these Belgian design projects highlight the beauty of natural materials and tactile surfaces.
