New collection presentation

On 18 May 2018, Design museum Gent lifts the veil on the new presentation of its permanent collection. The ca. 200 masterpieces on display give new insights into artisan, industrial and artistic design. (Re-)discover Belgium’s largest and most diverse design collection. Instead of following a chronological order, the presentation puts the objects themselves in the spotlight. 

The themes encourage you to look at the objects in multiple, different ways, taking you on a tour of designs with an extraordinary story, explaining the reason for commissions, or give examples of responsible design. The flexible exhibition design was created by Doorzon Interior architects & FELT architects. 

Generously supported by the Léon Courtin-Marcelle Bouché Fund, administered by the King Baudouin Foundation.
