Two appointments with Belgian architecture are on the programme of the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels: the furniture designed by Jules Wabbes and "XX models".
Drawings, photos, prototypes and one-off pieces showcase the work of Jules Wabbes, considered to be one of Belgium’s leading post-war designers but largely unknown to the general public.
The exhibition, titled “Jules Wabbes, Furniture Designer” offers a complete overview of the Belgian furniture designer’s work, from his first works like the stool designed for Anna David-Marber, through to the furniture he created for student housing in Louvain-la-Neuve. The exhibition focuses in particular on Jules Wabbes’ production for the Foncolin offices and on the furniture he designed for the Belgian section of the Milan Triennals in 1957 and 1960.
