14-23 OCTOBER 2017, Kortrijk-Belgium
The Biennale Interieur is a non-profit organization acting in the field of design, product development and innovation. In 1967, the founder members of the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk were excited by the impossible. One of their aims was to put contemporary design for the home and interior innovations on display for a broad general public and not only for professionals, as was the case with most other fairs. They dreamed of creating a space and an atmosphere that did not obey the laws of traditional layout and stage design. The uniqueness of the concept and the increase in international outreach, turnover, number of visitors, number of exhibitors and world-renowned design brands, press articles etc., show that there was a true need for an innovative model for design as a cultural as well as a commercial entity.
