The Belgian design scene is vast and diverse. Belgian institutions are always at the forefront of supporting the people, new projects and products that make our country dynamic and unique.
Nik Aelbrecht for Cappellini
In February 2019, Nik Aelbrecht (32 years old, graduate in architecture and furniture design) participates in the collective stand of Belgium is Design in the Greenhouse section of the Stockholm furniture & light fair, together with Tenue de Ville (wallpaper), Dim Atelier (lighting) and Nicolas Bovesse (carpets), among others. On this occasion, Giulio Cappellini fell in love with this table, which was shown for the first time in a prototype version. Three years later, the Italian publisher presented Openup, the Belgian's table in its original rectangular version, as well as in a round version. This edition once again proves Cappellini's dynamism in the search for young talent, but also the importance of Belgium is Design's actions to promote Belgian talent abroad.
