About Uptown Design 2016!

The third edition of the Uptown Design Tour will take place from 15 September to 1 October 2016. Located at the upper part of Brussels, this exclusive tour will now start from the BIP, Brussels Information Point. Kunty Moureau, Uptown Design Curator and initiator of the concept, presents exclusive designer’s creations to the general public throughout 19 prestigious addresses established on the Boulevard de Waterloo, Avenue de la Toison d’Or, rue du Grand Cerf, rue du Berger et rue de Namur.

Uptown Design has become a key creative and cultural event and will this year have godparents: Xavier Lust, the internationally recognized designer and Marion Lemesre, Alderman for Economic Affairs of the city of Brussels.

Each designer has been carefully selected to make sure that the exposed artwork is in perfect harmony with the host venue. In just three years, the Uptown Design Tour has become Brussels’ new designers showcase. Furthermore, it truly puts the spotlight on the work of Belgian and European designers which you will have to reckon with.

An additional asset of this new edition are the guided tours, which will be proposed to the public and company on reservation request, in three different languages (FR, NL and EN) * at E-Guides (www.e-guides.be), for the entire period of the tour. The guided tours will start from the Brussels Information Point (BIP).

*100€ per group up to 15 people
