Uptown Design Brussels

This year the second edition of the Uptown Design, located in the upper part of Brussels, has doubled in size and welcomes many new prestigious locations. The challenges remain the same: present talented designers living in Belgium in shops and hotels on Boulevard de Waterloo, Avenue de la Toison d’Or and Avenue Louise. Well known for gathering famous brands from Belgium and all over the world, they become privileged partners for Belgian design.

Each designer will present a set of a limited edition or new pieces designed in luxurious or precious material: leather, corian, precious woods, metals and stones… The pieces will be available for sale, on the spot, directly from the designer. Uptown Design’s asset is that it offers exceptional Belgian items to an audience of collectors and lovers of art and design.

There are ten venues and not all of them are directly connected to fashion.

The Sofitel Sofitel Brussels Le Louise on Avenue de la Toison d’Or will be showcasing Jun Gobron & 727Sailbags and Maud Herbage.

Jun Gobron is a Belgian Japanese Interior & Product Designer, born in Namibia. He spent his childhood in Belgium but received a mixed education in French and Japanese. He works now as an Interior Designer in an internationally renowned architectural agency. In parallel, he creates his own products.

727Sailbags is a Brittany-based eco-responsible and ethical company. They recycle sails to transform them into unique and stylish creations. Genoese, spinnakers or mainsails from cruise boats become luggage article, accessories, decoration pieces or clothing.

Maude Herbage is a Belgian jewelry designer who studied illustration at St Luc in Brussels. Gold is her favourite material.
