This exhibition highlights the importance of the questions that Belgian designers have around the choice of form and function in designs. The items selected for Between Art and Design. The Belgian Scene put a spotlight on the tension and grey zone between art and design. It reflects not only beautifully the the wealth and diversity of contemporary Belgian design but offers also a fascinating view of limited series and unique pieces, mainly or exclusively hand-made, in which unconventional and often monumental form takes precedence over functionality.

The result is a very personal design language that invite interaction. The objects may surprise you, make you think, move you, disturb or mislead, or even amuse you.
