Brussels Design September

For a whole month Brussels Design September brings together more than 100 cultural and commercial events in the city creating a platform for meeting Belgian designers as well as being open to international designers. There are numerous interesting events happening during the month, many with textiles as a main focus.

Textile designers Linda Topic and Antonin Bachet are holding an exhibition of handmade felt carpets, entitled ‘Kece’, at the Wabi-Sabi Arts & Crafts Gallery.

Linda Topic is also showing another collaborative project with Marc Van Hoe of Nieuwbrug, a centre of textile development and a location of a great archive of textile design work particularly from the Art Nouveau and the Art Deco periods. Linda Topic and textile designer, artist, producer and consultant Marc Van Hoe selected five original sketches from the historical Nieuwbrug collection, which were then interpreted by Guatemalan craftsmen in wool with new colour signatures and structures. This has produced a brand new jacquard research collection. The show ‘Art Nouveau as Generator’ is on at Nieuwbrug.
