Milan Design Week
9-13 April 2018
Viale Stelvio, 66
During this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, the BRUT collective is represented by Bram Vanderbeke, Charlotte Jonckheer, Linde Freya Tangelder and Nel Verbeke.
BRUT was founded in 2018 and is a collective of emerging Belgian designers. The junction of their practices is a natural consequence of their similarities in idiom, concepts and vision. They exemplify a young generation of Belgian designers which values the significance of collaboration and collective involvement within the contemporary and international design landscape.
BRUT therefore embodies the commitment to realizing a dialogue between designers and their design language: a visual and conceptual encounter which both reflects the common qualities of the designers and emphasizes the personal idiosyncrasies of their practices. Every year, this dialogue is materialized with a co-decided scenography – a shared setting which visualizes a collective narrative.
BRUT has a dedicated attention for the architectural, sculptural and emotional potential of contemporary Belgian design. On the one hand, this focus is a result of the personal sensibilities of the participating designers – the corresponding characters of their practices. On the other hand, it creates a common ground and motive; it realizes and defines an environment where the designers can show, strengthen and challenge each other.
BRUT was named Young Design Talent 2019 by Flanders DC and received a Henry Van De Velde Gold Award.
