Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium ended its 24th edition in the pursuit of dialogue between “between commercial reality and cultural reflection, an essential component of successful design”, in the words of Lowie Vermeesch, President of the not-for-profit Biennale Interieur organisation.
Ten packed days, with a 40,000-square-metre area dedicated to contemporary design in the Kortrijk Xpo venue. An opportunity to see both purely design aspects as well as the brainchild of Biennale curator Joseph Grima – an investigation into the meaning of the home in our fast-changing society: “The Home Does Not Exist”. This theme was also explored in the Broelschool Demolition Workshop, organised by Grima’s firm, Space Caviar.
Apart from the Interieur Awards, the “Interieur Bars” and “Interieur Bistro” locations also contributed to providing an interactive experience of the interior design world.
Biennale Interieur 2014 has established itself as a truly innovative journey, sharing ideas and concepts and emphasising the need to deal with our digital world also by designing for new living needs.
