Mon–Sun 10 am–6 pm

The Design Museum Brussels is pleased to invite you to discover the new temporary exhibition Christophe Gevers, the architecture of the detail. More than a collection of objects, this exhibition is an opportunity to discover the unique world of one of the major figures of Belgian interior architecture and design who was driven by a lifelong ambition to make built spaces more human. A designer who cannot be seen in separation from his surroundings.

The expo includes the “library of materials”, the workplace with its tools, machinery and equipment, as well as the graphic designs. Included is also the unique and impressive collection of models that Gevers made before starting on his technical drawings, a characteristic of his working process. To these are added furniture and accessories such as the TBA chair designed for the Taverne des Beaux-Arts (1959) or the CG01 lamp for the restaurant Cap d’Argent. The humanity we attribute to every creation by Christophe Gevers derives from his personal commitment and attention to detail at every stage of the design process.
