Design Museum Brussels

The Design Museum Brussels is dedicated to the design and its history. Created in 2015, the museum was first named the Art & Design Atomium Museum (or Adam). In 2020, the name of the museum changed to the Design Museum Brussels. The museum is located in the North of Brussels, on the plateau of the Heysel, near the Atomium and its creation followed the acquisition by the Atomium of a private collection.

The Museum has a Plastic Design Collection that shows the evolution of the plastic design from 1950 until today. The collection is composed of more than 2000 artworks from known artist like César, Joe Colombo, Verner Panton, Eero and Aarnio.

Next to this first collection, the museum has an exhibition about the Belgian Design, dedicated to the Belgian design and its history.

The museum has also temporary exhibitions to explore other fields of creation and design, and its impacts on the society and our life. Indeed, the main purpose of the Design Museum Brussels is to make design understandable and accessible to everyone though its exhibitions, guided visits, workshops, conferences and events.
