Until 13 September 2015 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will be staging a retrospective of Dutch and Belgian design over the past 200 years.
In this ‘design derby’ the design icons of the Netherlands and Belgium will face each other in an exciting confrontation. From the sumptuous and elegant Belgian Art Nouveau to the more austere Dutch version and from the contemporary traditional tours de force from Belgium to the level-headed Dutch Design of today. Who will be the winner of this match or will it end in a draw?
The first generation Senseo designed by WAACS was also selected by the curators to compete in the Design Derby, Netherlands – Belgium (1815-2015). The Senseo will be competing heads-on with the Samsonite Cosmolite from designer Eric Sijmons.
End September the complete exhibition wil travel to Design Museum Gent, where it will be open to the public from 23.10.2015 – 13.03.2016.
